LIVERMORE FALLS — A local man was arrested early Thursday after he smashed into a woman’s car three times with another vehicle and assaulted a man, police Chief Ernest Steward Jr. said.

Police arrested Travis Brown, 25, of Livermore Falls on charges of violation condition of release, assault and criminal mischief, Steward said.

Officers Steve Allen and Maurice Drouin responded to a residence in the East Livermore area Wednesday after receiving a call from a woman at 11:51 p.m. reporting that a man was outside ramming her car, he said.

Apparently Brown was out drinking with his friends and after he was dropped off at his residence on Hunton Loop he drove to another residence in the area, Steward said.

A man at the victim’s residence confronted Brown and the two got into a physical altercation and an assault took place, he said.

Brown left the scene before police arrive but officers located him at a friend’s residence in the area, Steward said.

The woman’s Toyota Camry was dented heavily on the driver’s side near the tire, Steward said, and was struck hard enough that officers could see that it was moved sideways in the driveway.

It was unclear Thursday what vehicle Brown was driving.

Brown was out on bail on unrelated domestic violence charges that he has pleaded not guilty to, Steward said. A trial is set for May in that case.

He was taken to Androscoggin County Jail in Auburn on the new charges Thursday and had a $310 cash bail set on the assault and criminal mischief charges, Steward said. He needed to appear before a judge before he was released on the violation of condition of release charge, he said.
