INDUSTRY — A Fairfield man was arrested early Thursday after a sheriff’s deputy responded to a report of a disturbance on Time Square Road.

A person reported about 12:24 a.m. that Mitchel MacArthur was in his driveway threatening him and refusing to leave, Scott Nichols Sr., sheriff of Franklin County, wrote in an email.

Deputy Andrew Morgan responded.

“It was alleged that a girlfriend of MacArthur was at the residence of the complainant; however investigation revealed that the girlfriend had left MacArthur and he was now stalking her and had followed her to the Industry residence,” according to Nichols.

MacArthur, 28, of Fairfield was arrested on a charge of domestic violence stalking. He was taken to the Franklin County Detention Center in Farmington.

He was released Thursday morning on $500 cash bail.

A conviction on a stalking charge carries a maximum penalty of 364 days in jail and a $2,000 fine.
