ROCKLAND, Maine (AP) - The Knox County District Attorney has filed more charges against Don McLean that stem from the “American Pie” singer’s domestic violence arrest.

Police arrested McLean on a misdemeanor count of domestic violence assault on Jan. 18.

Assistant District Attorney Christopher Fernald said on Wednesday that the office is adding charges of terrorizing, criminal threatening, criminal restraint, criminal mischief and obstructing the reporting of a crime. All are misdemeanors.

McLean’s attorney, Walter McKee, says the singer is pleading not guilty to all charges.

The case is set to return to a Maine court room on Monday. McKee says McLean will not appear because he has already entered a plea.

McLean’s wife filed a handwritten request for protection after the arrest. The couple later announced through McKee that the order was dismissed.
