AUGUSTA, Maine - House Republican leader Kenneth Fredette is calling on a GOP legislative candidate to drop out after he was arrested Sunday for alleged domestic assault in Saco.
The candidate, Mark Bedell, is being held without bail at the York County Jail, according to the Saco Police Department.
Police say they arrested Bedell Sunday night after a 42-year-old woman reported he had assaulted her earlier that day.
Bedell, age 50, was charged with aggravated assault, a Class B crime. Bedell is expected to be arraigned this afternoon.
