A Hollis man is in jail and a York County Sheriff’s deputy is recovering from injuries following a domestic disturbance Thursday night.

A woman asked for a deputy’s help to avoid a fight with her partner when she went to collect belongings and her child at a home on Bar Mills Road in Hollis at 8 p.m.

Deputy Peter Nelson accompanied her and at the house encountered Bruce Blake, 47. Blake ordered Nelson to leave and then tried to force him out, police said.

Nelson called for backup and during the struggle that followed, received a cut to his finger and sprains to his wrist and neck, police said.

Deputies used a Taser on Blake twice before he could be taken into custody, police said.

Blake is being held on $2,500 bail and is scheduled to appear in court this afternoon at 1 p.m.
