Singer Don McLean was arrested on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge Monday in Maine.

Camden's Chief Randy Gagne told FOX411 police responded to a call at McLean's Camden, Maine residence early Monday morning and arrested the singer without incident.

He was transported to Knox County Jail in Rockland, Maine, and was later released after on bail.

He has a court date set for February 22, 2016.

The 70-year-old still performs occasionally, most recently in August at the Maine Lobster Festival.

A rep for the singer did not return FOX411's request for comment.

In 2013, McLean was fined $400 for driving his Chrysler too fast through a Maine school zone. McLean's attorney argued the school zone warning lights requiring a 15 mph limit were not flashing; police said they were on.

The attorney who represented McLean during his traffic case did not immediately return a phone message.

McLean's original manuscript and notes to "American Pie" sold at auction for $1.2 million in April. The 1971 hit was about the deaths of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper in a plane crash on Feb. 3, 1959 — The Day the Music Died.

McLean is married to his wife Patrisha and the couple share two children.
