A Brooks man who was attempting to prevent a woman from leaving his home Tuesday, Nov. 16, allegedly smashed out a truck window while two adults and a young child were inside the vehicle.

Charles C. Beckett, 25, of Brooks was arrested on charges of domestic violence assault, assault, criminal mischief and endangering the welfare of a child following the 5:45 p.m. incident.

Lt. Jason Trundy of the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office said police became aware of the domestic dispute between Beckett and a woman after the woman tried to leave Beckett’s Skyscraper Hill Road home with a 2-year-old child.

Trundy said following the dispute the woman contacted a male friend and asked him to come get her and the child who was with her. The male arrived after a few minutes, but after the woman and the child got into her friend’s truck, Trundy said, Beckett jumped onto the hood of the pickup.

From there, Beckett allegedly hopped into the back of the pickup and smashed out the rear window of the cab.

“He got glass all over everyone in the vehicle,” Trundy said, noting that neither the adults nor the child was seriously injured.

At that point, Trundy said, the male driver exited the vehicle and Beckett assaulted him. The driver eventually pushed Beckett away from the vehicle enough so that he could climb back into the driver’s seat and escape the situation.

Trundy said deputies caught up with Beckett a short time later, and he was arrested without incident.

Beckett is scheduled to appear at Fifth District Court in Belfast Tuesday, Dec. 7.
