Case Against Former Milo Police Sergeant Dropped 

The Penobscot County District Attorney’s Office has dropped a domestic violence assault charge against a former Milo police sergeant.Prosecutors say there were too many conflicting statements in the case against 42-year-old Damien Pickel to move forward with it.Pickel was arrested in March after his then-wife reported he’d assaulted her a month earlier. She said Pickel grabbed her and slammed her into a closet door and wall. Pickel was placed on administrative leave without pay. He later resigned from the department.
