SEBAGO — A deputy used a Taser on a man Wednesday night after he became increasingly aggressive, according to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office.

Police say 48-year-old Victor Berge pulled the probes out of his chest and continued to challenge the deputies, who were responding to a domestic violence call. Sgts. Josh Potvin and David Hall grabbed Berge and placed him under arrest after a brief struggle.

The deputies went to 884 Peabody Pond Road to check on a 911 hang-up call. On their way, they learned that a woman had reported that her husband, Berge, was intoxicated, threatening suicide and had fired a gun inside the home. Berge was allegedly refusing to allow his wife and their 5-year-old daughter to leave their home.

Soon after the deputies arrived, Victor Berge came out of the home and refused to submit to arrest, according to the Sheriff’s Office. The office said the deputies didn’t know whether he was armed at the time and that his aggressive behavior continued to escalate. Potvin used his Taser on Berge.

The deputies found several firearms in various locations inside the residence in what appeared to be anticipation of a possible stand-off and shootout with deputies, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Berge was charged with reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon, domestic violence terrorizing and refusing to submit to arrest and detention.
