Woman Arrested for Firing at Deputy

| March 13, 2014


NEW PORTLAND, Maine (AP) – Authorities have arrested a woman they say fired a gun at a Somerset County sheriff’s deputy from the doorway of a New Portland home.

The deputy was not injured.

Police tell the Morning Sentinel it started at about 11 p.m. Tuesday when 34-year-old Bonnie Jean Tanguay called 911, but seemed “extremely vague” about the reason for the call.

When Deputy David Cole arrived, the home was dark, so he approached the door. That’s when Tanguay allegedly opened fire before retreating back inside.

Cole took cover, and when Tanguay came to the door again, Cole got close enough to tackle her. She was arrested Wednesday morning and charged with reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon. She remains jailed.
