BANGOR – A Maine Game Warden, who was among those who appeared on the national television show “North Woods Law,” now faces an assault charge.
According to a statement from the Maine Warden Service, veteran Warden Jeremy Judd has been placed on administrative leave pending completion of an internal investigation.
“Last Thursday evening, July 18th, around 7 p.m., we did issue Jeremy Judd a summons for assault,” said Bangor Police Sgt. Wade Betters.
Monday afternoon, Sgt. Betters said police have turned the case over to the Penobscot County District Attorney’s Office.
The statement from the Warden’s Service said the assault allegedly occurred at Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion the night of the Florida Georgia Line concert.
The 41-year-old Judd was among the four-person team who arrested John Williams, who was recently convicted of murdering Somerset County Sheriff’s Cpl. Eugene Cole in 2018.
District Attorney Marianne Lynch released a statement on the incident as well, which said Judd is due in court in Bangor on August 21.
Judd has been with the Warden Service for more than a dozen years.
