WATERVILLE – A man who was arrested on two charges Saturday was arrested again Sunday afternoon on a charge he violated a condition of release.

William Reynolds, 32, of Waterville, was arrested at his Dalton Street apartment Saturday evening on charges of domestic violence assault and assault, both class D misdemeanors.

Reynolds came home after drinking with a friend and allegedly pushed on his wife’s back while she was in bed, continuing after she told him to get off of her and said he was hurting her. The wife’s adult son allegedly forced Reynolds off, and Reynolds then allegedly assaulted him and struck his face, police said. The son and the wife suffered minor injuries, said Deputy Chief Bill Bonney.

Police arrived at the scene at 8:15 p.m. The two misdemeanor charges are punishable by a fine of up to $2,000 and up to 364 days in jail.

Reynolds made $1,000 unsecured bail, meaning he paid $60 to leave and will have to pay $1,000 if he fails to appear in court. His bail conditions ordered him to not contact his wife and her son.

On Sunday, Reynolds’ wife called police to ask about his bail conditions, Bonney said. Police learned in that call that Reynolds had contacted her multiple times that day. While the calls weren’t threatening, Bonney said, alcohol was again allegedly involved.

Reynolds was arrested on Sunday at 3:45 p.m. on a charge of violating a condition of release, a class E misdemeanor, punishable by a fine up to $1,000 and up to six months in jail.

Reynolds was taken to Kennebec County jail where he waits to appear before a judge who will set new bail conditions. A booking photo was not immediately available.
