The American Pie singer was arrested by police in Maine following the incident with his wife, Patrisha, at their Camden home on 18 January (16).

MCLean pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanour domestic violence charge and was subsequently released on $10,000 (£6,932) bail, but on Wednesday (17Feb16), Knox County Assistant District Attorney Christopher Fernald announced officials are adding misdemeanour charges of "terrorizing, criminal threatening, criminal restraint, criminal mischief and obstructing the reporting of a crime".

MCLean's attorney, Walter MCKee, tells The Hollywood Reporter his client is pleading not guilty to the new counts.

Since he has already entered a plea, MCLean's attorney says he will not appear in court when the case is heard on Monday (22Feb16).

Patrisha had originally obtained a temporary restraining order to keep Don away from her, but MCKee confirmed the order has since been lifted so the pair can resolve its issues.

In a statement released in late January (16), MCKee claimed the couple had "agreed to move forward", adding, "Neither party is seeking divorce. This now becomes a private matter."
