WALDO — State Police arrested 30-year-old Kote Aldus Friday afternoon at his home andcharged him with violating conditions of his release stemming from a standoff with police Jan. 9 in which shots were fired while a 2-week-old baby was in the home, and he was subsequently arrested for domestic violence assault.

According to a press release Friday night from Department of Public Safety Public Information Officer Shannon Moss, State Police determined Jan. 21 that Aldus was violating his conditions of a protection from abuse order as well as his conditions of release, and that he allegedly was “tampering with a victim.”

Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Aldus and a search warrant for his property on East Waldo Road, the press release said. At approximately 4:30 p.m., detectives, along with the Maine State Police Tactical Team, “were able to take Aldus into custody without incident.”

Aldus was taken to the Waldo County Jail.

On Jan. 9, State Police were called to his home around 5 p.m. for a report of domestic violence. According to a statement from Moss, a victim and her 3-year-old child had fled the residence to a neighbor’s home. As troopers were investigating, Aldus allegedly started firing shots in their direction from inside his residence while the victim’s 2-week-old baby was inside. While other members of the State Police Tactical Team were responding, Trooper Tyler Harrington, a tactical team member, returned fire.

About three hours later, Aldus was arrested and charged with domestic violence assault. He was taken to a Belfast hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. The baby was unharmed.
