MONMOUTH, Maine (AP) — Police say a mother and daughter are facing charges after ramming each other's cars during a dispute in a Monmouth cemetery, resulting in damage to several headstones.


Police say 42-year-old Melissa Grant and 20-year-old Savannah Lowe, both of Winthrop, were arrested after the demolition derby Friday in Monmouth Ridge Cemetery.

Police Chief Kevin Mulherin tells the Kennebec Journal that Lowe wanted to keep Grant from leaving the cemetery because the daughter thought her mother was too drunk to drive.

The daughter hit her mother's car with her vehicle, then the mother hit the daughter's car. Several headstones were knocked over or broken, causing an estimated $35,000 in damage.

Both were arrested and held over the weekend on charges including aggravated reckless conduct. It was not clear if they had lawyers.
