Police arrested McLean on a misdemeanour count of domestic-violence assault Jan. 18.

Knox County Assistant District Attorney Christopher Fernald said Wednesday his office is adding misdemeanour charges of terrorizing, criminal threatening, criminal restraint, criminal mischief and obstructing the reporting of a crime.

McLean's attorney says the singer is pleading not guilty to all the charges.

The case is set to return to court Monday. The attorney says McLean won't appear because he has already entered a plea.

McLean's wife filed a handwritten request for protection after the arrest. The couple later announced the order was dismissed.

The singer lives in coastal Camden. "American Pie" topped the Billboard chart 44 years ago.
