ACTON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - The York County Sheriff's Deputies say a former Acton Rescue squad member was arrested Monday for threatening a deputy.
On Monday, deputies say they responded to the town of Acton for a man who reportedly pulled a handgun from his vehicle. Sheriff's deputies went to the Shapleigh home of Donald Ouellette. Officials say Ouellette is the former Assistant Chief of the Acton Rescue Squad and that while they were conducting an investigation into the earlier incident, Ouellette was issued a written order not to have contact with fire personnel or go to the fire station property.
Deputies say that Ouellette refused to acknowledge the order and said that he was going to the Rescue Board meeting scheduled for later in the week. Officials say Ouellette was warned to stay off of Acton Town Property. Ouellette then stated he would not abide by that order and made threatening communications to the deputy who was issuing him the order. Ouellette was then arrested for Criminal Threatening.
Donald Ouellette was booked at the York County Jail and posted a $100 bail. He is scheduled to appear in Springvale District Court on September 24, 2013 at 1 PM.
