A Harpswell man was arrested Wednesday after police said he fired several gunshots at a woman’s home in Topsham that afternoon.

Christopher Williams, 41, was stopped by Brunswick police after leaving the woman’s home on Meadow Road, according to a news release by Topsham police Chief Marc R. Hagan.

Williams was transported to Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset and charged with reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon, discharging a firearm within 300 feet of a residence, obstructing the reporting of a crime, and criminal mischief. He is scheduled to appear in court May 11 in Sagadahoc County.

The incident began around 3:20 p.m. when Topsham officers responded to a report of a domestic disturbance at the Meadow Road home. By the time officers arrived, Williams had left. The woman was not harmed.

Topsham and Brunwick police stopped Williams’ 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer near the intersection of the Topsham Bypass and Route 1. Hagan said officers searched the Trailblazer and located an empty 9 mm handgun.
