BELFAST — Belfast police say they arrested a Maine woman who tried to ram an officer after she became agitated while waiting at a credit union to get money for diapers.

WMTW-TV reports that 34-year-old Deanna Lenfest is facing charges of criminal mischief, driving to endanger, disorderly conduct and refusing to submit to arrest.

Belfast Police Chief Michael McFadden said Lenfest tried to ram an officer who responded to tellers at a Downeast Credit Union who reported a woman was upset on Saturday. McFadden said the officer jumped out of the way but that the police cruiser sustained minor damage when she tried to ram him.

She was arrested later on Main Street. Lenfest was not immediately available for comment.
