Founder of Waterfront Concerts arrested

PORTLAND-Portland Police confirm the founder of the Waterfront Concert Series in Bangor was arrested over the weekend following a domestic violence incident.

41 year old Alex Gray was arrested Sunday by Old town Police. They had been asked by Portland police to pick him up and transport him to Augusta where he was transferred to another vehicle and brought to jail. Gray is accused of getting into an altercation with his 32 year old girlfriend and knocking her to the floor early Sunday morning. She claims he bashed her head numerous times into the hardwood floors and choked her.  She was then brought to a hospital for treatment. Gray was initially charged with aggravated assault which is a felony. It has since been reduced to the misdemeanor charge of domestic violence assault.  Gray has since been released on bail. We've reached out to Gray for comment, but were told he's unavailable. .

When he isn't reporting the news, Craig can be found taking on new adventures with his two daughters or exploring the coast of Maine in his kayak. His other passion is making furniture in his shop or just about anything involving the outdoors.
