Sangerville - A Sangerville, Maine woman was arrested for, yep, domestic violence, after it was alleged she waived a gun around and fired a round while arguing with her husband. At the time, she was wearing a t-shirt that read "Stop domestic violence."
On Tuesday, the Piscataquis County District Attorney announced a 38-year-old woman, Emily Wilson, was arrested for domestic violence and later released on $200 bond. The alleged assault occurred on Apr. 18.
According to police, Wilson accused her husband of having an affair and the couple argued in their bedroom. It is alleged that during the argument, Wilson had a loaded .45-caliber gun and was waiving it around. At one point, authorities say she fired a round into the mattress of the bed. Wilson is also accused of grabbing her husband's wrist.
Her husband then called 911. Although he contacted the Piscataquis County Sheriff's Office, the matter was turned over to the Maine State Police. When officers arrived, they seized the gun belonging to Wilson and a shell casing that were both found under the bed. According to Criminal Complaint, Wilson, who teaches social studies at Piscataquis Community High School, was charged with one count of domestic violence reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon and one count of domestic violence assault.
As can be seen from her mugshot, at the time of Wilson's arrest she was wearing a dark blue t-shirt with the words "Stop domestic violence" emblazoned on the front.
If convicted of the more serious charge involving a dangerous weapon, Wilson faces up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. On the charge of domestic violence assault, she could be jailed for up to a year and fined up to $2,000.
The grand jury in Piscataquis County is not scheduled to meet until next month and Wilson is due to appear in court on June 6 to be arraigned.
As Newser so eloquently put it, she should have listened to her t-shirt.
