NORRIDGEWOCK, Maine (AP) - Police have arrested a Norridgewock man they say accused his neighbors of kidnapping his girlfriend then fired several gun rounds at their house.

William Longley is scheduled to appear in court Monday to face charges including aggravated reckless conduct and criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon in connection with the Saturday night episode.

Chief Deputy James Ross says officers responded to several 911 calls, both from Longley, who claimed his neighbors had kidnapped his girlfriend, and a neighbor, who felt threatened because Longley was in the driveway with a gun.

Three gunshots hit the house. No one was injured.

Ross says the 46-year-old Longley’s girlfriend had just gone for a walk and alcohol was a factor.



Longley was held in jail and it’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
