Couple arrested in Parsonsfield domestic dispute

PARSONSFIELD — A couple involved in a domestic violence incident a week ago became violent again Tuesday, leading to the arrest of both, the York County Sheriff's Office said.

According to deputies, the Sheriff's Office got a tip about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday that Jeffrey Perry was in contact with his girlfriend, Victoria Valente, in violation of his terms of release.

Perry, 30, of Parsonsfield, was arrested last week and charged with a domestic violence assault on Valente, 21, of Hiram. He was released on $1,000 bail and ordered to not be within 100 feet of Valente.

But after a tip, a deputy spotted Perry driving with Valente in his car in Parsonfield on Tuesday. The deputy attempted to stop Perry, police said, and Perry tried to flee in his vehicle, but he veered off the road and got stuck in a ditch.

Valente ran from the stuck vehicle and hid while the deputy arrested Perry and placed him in the cruiser.

When the deputy saw Valente emerge from where she was hiding, he motioned for her to come to the cruiser. But as she approached, Perry began to thrash around the cruiser and tried to kick out the cruiser's windows, police said.

Police said when the deputy attempted to calm Perry, Valente interfered and had to be restrained.
Valente was charged with disorderly conduct and released on her own recognizance with a court date of Oct. 21 in Springvale District Court.

Perry is being held at the York County Jail for felony violation of conditions of release. His initial court appearance will be Wednesday in Alfred Superior Court.
