Don McLean

(Radio.com) A Maine court has granted Patrisha McLean an order of protection against her ex-husband, "American Pie" singer Don McLean, that will last two years.

The order follows a domestic violence assault by McLean in July 2016. At the time, McLean pled guilty and his attorney said he would've had a punishment of a $3,000 fine if he could stay out of trouble for a year.

No word as to how his inability to do so will affect any further fine. Patrisha says she's glad the order was granted. The songwriter's attorney did not return a phone call looking for comment, according to Billboard. Read more here.
