Maine Pastor arrested for domestic abuse on wife

FALMOUTH, Maine — The pastor of a non-denominational Christian church in Windham has been arrested on domestic violence charges.

Police say they were called to the Falmouth home of 57-year-old Kendall Libby at about 11 p.m. Sunday for a fight and determined probable cause to charge him with domestic assault on his wife.

She did not require medical treatment.

Libby was booked at the Cumberland County Jail and released on $150 cash bail.

Libby started the Grace Church congregation in 2009. It meets at Windham High School.

An associate pastor at the church declined comment on Libby’s arrest.

While this looks like a horrific and unthinkable crime, you must understand the background facts. Kendall Libby's wife has a brain tumor, has witnessed the death of not only her sister, but also her young-adult son within the past year. You'll note that she did not seek medical treatment following her phone call - and obviously the Pastor is dealing with some major life issues at the moment. The police did not list any actual evidence of abuse. I know him personally, have known him for 35 years - he's a kind and generous man who cares deeply for his family and his congregation and would NOT physically or emotionally abuse his wife.

You neglect to mention that all charges were dropped, because it did not happen. So much for innocent until proven guilty!
