BRANFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A Branford teenager was arrested Tuesday afternoon for allegedly threatening his girlfriend, who police say he was ordered to have no contact with.

Branford police say 18-year-old David Maher was arrested at his Rogers Street home shortly after threatening the Branford High School student, who was not identified. They say Maher was not at the school during or after the threat was made, and the incident had no impact on students’ academic day.

Maher is charged with first-degree threatening, and violation of a protective order. He is being held on $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in New Haven Superior Court Wednesday.
