Man Arrested in Bradford Standoff Appears in Court 

A 57-year-old Bradford man arrested last week after a seven-hour standoff at his mobile home in Maine remains behind bars after he appeared in court on a charge of terrorizing. Bail was set Monday at $10,000 cash or $75,000 in property for Clarence Leo Rairdon, who entered no plea in Penobscot County Superior Court. The Associated Press reports that Rairdon appeared confused during his brief appearance. He told Justice Michaela Murphy that he didn’t understand what was happening and had not spoken with an attorney. Officials said the standoff began Thursday after a former girlfriend of Rairdon called police to say he was drunk and had threatened her with an axe. A state police tactical team used tear gas to flush Rairdon from the home.
