A grand jury indicted a Unity man charged in connection with a family dispute during which a firearm was brandished.

Mark D. Meierdirk, 39, of Unity, was indicted on charges of domestic violence criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, domestic violence terrorizing, two counts of terrorizing, assault, criminal mischief and violation of condition of release.

According to previously published reports, officers from the Maine State Police, Waldo County Sheriff’s Office and the Maine Warden Service responded to a residence in Unity Jan. 24 for a report of two men fighting and that a firearm was involved.

Police declined to release details regarding the nature of the fight because of the ongoing investigation, but they did characterize the incident as a “family dispute.”

No injuries were reported as a result of the dispute.

Meierdirk was previously arrested in November 2012 for false public alarm or report, criminal attempt at insurance deception and violation of condition of release after reporting that a storage unit he owned in Unity was burglarized and several items were missing.

Meierdirk was indicted by a grand jury in that same month on charges of furnishing schedule W drugs (oxycodone), unlawful possession of schedule W drugs (oxycodone) and false public alarm or report.

Attorney Nathan Bell represents Meierdirk, according to court documents.
