Ex-Gardiner councilor charged in shooting
GARDINER, Maine—A former Gardiner city councilor is facing charges after allegedly firing several shots from a high-powered rifle at his ex-girlfriend's truck as she stood nearby.
Police say 58-year-old Allie Vigue was charged with aggravated reckless conduct and criminal mischief in connection with the Wednesday night shooting. He was held on $5,000 bail.
Chief James Toman tells the Kennebec Journal (http://bit.ly/ygYHVr) there was nobody in the truck when Vigue shot it, but the woman was close enough to potentially be struck by a ricocheting bullet.
The women's name was not released because she is the possible victim of a domestic assault. Police say the two had split up.
Vigue served on the city council for several years in the 1990s.
