MILO A 23-year-old Milo man was arrested twice last week once for assaulting an officer after calling police to report disturbances at his parents' Railroad Ave residence.

Jeffrey Chase called police Tuesday, May 11, to report an assault at his the residence. Milo/Brownville Police Officer Nick Clukey said Chase was intoxicated and "was causing quite a ruckus."

"He said he was assaulted by someone in the house. Upon investigation, his parents who live there wanted him out. While I was waiting for him to leave, he pushed me," said Clukey.

Clukey said he was not injured, but that Chase did "shove my shoulder."

Chase was arrested at about 10 p.m. for assault to an officer, and itaken to Piscataquis County Jail in Dover-Foxcroft. He made bail on Thursday and was sentenced May 17 in Dover-Foxcroft District Court to 24 hours in jail — time served.

Chase was arrested again on Friday, May 14, according to Clukey, for criminal trespass and disorderly conduct, along with three others, at a neighbor's residence on Railroad Ave. Again, Chase called to request officers at the scene, Clukey said.

"It was another disturbance on :Railroad Ave ... at a neighbor's residence," said Clukey.

He had been warned to stay away from the property previously.

According to Clukey, three others were arrested at the scene for previous warrants: Daniel Reynolds, 47, of Milo; Louis Mueda, 44, of Milo, and Robert Niles, 24, of LaGrange. Reynolds' warrant was for failure to pay a fine, while Mueda and Niles were charged with failure to appear.
