Restraining order violation ends in arrest

A woman called police on Thursday after her estranged husband showed up at the bed and breakfast where she is a live-in manager.

Benjamin Levy, 27, broke in while his wife was still on the phone with dispatch, his arrest affidavit reports. Another man then held Levy at gunpoint while he and Levy’s wife escaped. It is not clear whether the armed man was a guest at the B&B.

The affidavit further indicates that when police arrived, they found Levy still inside and “visibly intoxicated.” After issuing a warning, officers shocked Levy using a Taser. Upon taking him into custody, they discovered his wife’s iPad stuffed inside his pants.

Levy is being held on a $10,000 bond for menacing and second degree burglary, both felonies, and a string of misdemeanors including violated a restraining order, resisting arrest, criminal tampering, and disorderly conduct. The case will be treated as domestic violence for the purposes of sentencing.
