CARTHAGE, Maine (WABI)- A Carthage man is accused of assaulting his girlfriend and creating a police standoff.

A 911 call came from Tainter Corner Road Wednesday night of a woman having cardiac issues.

During a second 911 call, dispatchers could year someone yelling in the background.

When police arrived, they determined 33-year old Anthony Marion had assaulted his live-in girlfriend and barricaded himself inside their trailer.

A relative told police Marion had also threatened others with a machete.

At one point, Marion reportedly told police he'd blow up his trailer by releasing gas and then igniting it, if they tried coming inside.

Several hours later, Marion surrendered.

He is facing numerous charges.
