A Rockland woman was arrested Friday, Nov. 17, accused of breaking the jaw of another patron at a local night spot earlier this month.

Jacqueline E. Johnson, also known as Jacqueline Harrington, 38, was charged with felony aggravated assault.

Johnson made her initial appearance Monday, Nov. 20, in Knox County Unified Court in Rockland, where Justice Daniel Billings set bail at $1,000 cash.

According to an affidavit filed in court by Rockland police, Johnson was initially issued a summons for misdemeanor assault on the night of Nov. 5. Police obtained a warrant from the court later after the severity of the alleged victim's injuries was known.

According to the affidavit, the alleged victim said she was dancing at the Time Out Pub with friends when Johnson punched her in the face without provocation. The woman fell to the floor and Johnson got down and continued to punch her and pull out some hair.

A bouncer removed Johnson from the pub, but she returned and continued her attack against the woman, according to the affidavit. Johnson was removed a second time from the pub.

The victim suffered a broken jaw, which will be wired shut for six weeks.

The 31-year-old victim lives in Lincolnville and told police that Johnson was staying at a place in Lincolnville and she fears for her safety.
