PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A 32-year-old Portland man and his 27-year-old girlfriend have been arrested and charged with firing a flare gun at a group of pedestrians during a dispute. No one was injured.

Ezra LeBlanc-Simpson and Rachel Smith of Portland are facing charges of criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon and reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon. Police say they later brandished a pellet gun made to look like a handgun.

It could not be immediately determined Thursday if they had a lawyer.

LeBlanc-Simpson faces an additional charge of violating bail conditions. He had earlier been charged with aggravated assault on Smith.
