The case against American Pie singer Don McLean keeps growing.

McLean was arrested back in January when police were called to his home in Camden, Maine to respond to what later became known as a case of domestic abuse against his wife, Patricia. Over time, more information came out with Patricia issuing a statement detailing alleged long-term abuse by McLean who she claimed had an explosive temper. She claimed that the night of the incident had left her bruised and that her eventual ability to make a 911 call had, most likely, saved her life.

While an order of protection was issued for Patricia, she later had it lifted and called off a divorce that she said the couple would get.

McLean is due back in court on February 22 and the charges that he will face have been upped significantly by prosecutors. Knox County Assistant Attorney Christopher Fernald said on Wednesday that he was adding misdemeanor charges of terrorizing, criminal threatening, criminal restraint, criminal mischief and obstructing the reporting of a crime.

The singer has already entered a not guilty plea and he is not expected in court on Monday to answer to the new charges.
