Bail set at $50,000 for suspect in Brewer domestic violence incident

Written by

BANGOR - A man who fled the state following an incident in Brewer in November 2018 appeared in a Bangor courtroom Tuesday.

According to authorities, 41-year-old Rahsaan White of Brewer was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals in Tennessee.

Police say he's been charged with violating a protection order and domestic violence threatening.

The charges stem from an incident on November 26, in which White allegedly poured gasoline in a home, vented the ceilings and turned the heat on high after he had threatened to burn the home down.

Tuesday, bail for White was set at $50,000 cash.

A judge also ordered him to have no contact with the victim.

"His conduct was absolutely terrifying, and that is a major factor in why I set bail in the amount I'm setting it," said Judge William Anderson.

White's next court appearance is scheduled for April 9.
