EDDINGTON, Maine — Maine State Police said an Eddington man was arrested early Thursday morning after holding police at bay for several hours following a domestic violence incident at his home on Clewleyville Road. 

Amilio Samaroo, 55, was taken into custody about around 4 a.m. by the Maine State Police Tactical Team. He is charged with threatening with a dangerous weapon and creating a police standoff.

Troopers responded to his home about 7:30 last night and said he refused to come out of the house. A team of negotiators arrived to assist, followed by the tactical team.

Samaroo was taken to the Penobscot County Jail. In his first court appearance Thursday, the judge set Samaroo's bail at $5000 with conditions of release should he make bail. His next court date is scheduled for June 2.
