RANDOLPH, Maine — A man on probation who held sheriff's deputies at bay for more than four hours Wednesday and stabbed a police dog because he didn't want to go back to jail wound up there anyway, police said Thursday.

Dustin Smith, 22, of Randolph, who was on probation stemming from a two-year aggravated assault sentence he recently completed, is facing a laundry list of charges, according to Kennebec County Sheriff Randall Liberty.

The trouble started around 6:30 p.m. when Cpl. C.J. Neagle of the Kennebec County Sheriff's Office received a call of a reported theft of prescription medications in nearby West Gardiner, Liberty said, and the suspect — Smith — was hiding at the Windsor Heights Apartment Complex in Randolph.
