Thomaston — A 36-year-old Waldoboro man was arrested Sunday evening after police said he threw a large rock at an occupied vehicle, smashing out the windshield of a car with a woman and baby inside.

Jamie P. Luce was arrested June 21 by Thomaston police. He was charged with Class B domestic violence, criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, Class B domestic violence reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon, endangering the welfare of a child and criminal mischief.

According to an affidavit filed by Thomaston police in the Knox County court, an officer was called to a domestic disturbance near the cemetery on Annabelle Lane.

The officer said his investigation determined that Luce appeared under the influence of drugs, according to the affidavit. Luce was in the car with the woman and baby when he bet her $100 he could start a problem with a man near the dog park. Luce went over and confronted the man, who pushed him back when Luce got in the man's face.

Luce then picked up a large rock and threw it at the car, smashing out the windshield, according to the affidavit. The woman and child were not injured.

Luce told police he did not mean to hit the car.

He was taken to the Knox County Jail in Rockland and was scheduled to make a court appearance Monday afternoon, June 22. The domestic violence charges were upgraded because of prior convictions.

Officers Jarrod Leonardi and Noah Stevens responded to the case.

I suppose he should be forgiven because he didn't mean to hit the car. Why don't he try growing up and stop being a pimple on the ass of progress.
