Ugh, what a horrifying situation.
Just four days after Don McLean was arrested for domestic abuse against his wife Patrisha McLean, news of an order of protection against the singer has surfaced.

In a statement to the Knox County court in Maine, Patrisha requested an order of protection against Don for horrific abuse that has been ongoing for "10 years or so". The scary situation reached its peak on Monday with a four-hour episode of violence.
Mrs. Mclean stated:
"He pressed the palms of his hands against my temples and squeezed as though my head were in a vice. My husband has a violent temper. For the first 10 years or so, his rage was unfathomably deep and very scary."
While the judge granted the requested, Don released a statement defending himself just hours later:
"I'm not a villain. What is occurring is the very painful breakdown of an almost 30 year relationship."
