McLean arrested on domestic violence charge

CAMDEN: American Pie singer Don McLean was arrested on a misdemeanour domestic violence charge on January 18 in Maine, a jail supervisor said.

McLean was arrested and posted $10,000 bail early on January 18 at the Knox County Jail, Cpl. Brad Woll said.

The singer-songwriter lives in the town of Camden. A message left for the police chief there by The Associated Press was not immediately returned.

Woll said he did not know if McLean, 70, had a lawyer. Messages seeking comment were left through the singer’s website and two representatives. A phone number listed under his name rang unanswered.

In 2013, McLean was fined $400 for driving his Chrysler too fast through a Maine school zone.
