WATERVILLE — A teacher at Mount View High School in Thorndike was arrested last week in Waterville after she was found to be driving under the influence with her young daughter following an altercation with the woman’s ex-boyfriend and others, according to police.

Karina Beadling, 39, of Waterville faces charges that include assault, domestic violence criminal threatening, operating under the influence and refusing to submit to arrest, Chief Joseph Massey of the Waterville Police Department said Thursday.

Massey said police responded about 11 p.m. last Friday to Morrill Avenue. Beadling went to a home to confront her ex-boyfriend “over some issues,” Massey said.

“Once she got there, she entered the house from the rear,” Massey said. “Once she got inside, she was in an altercation with the ex-boyfriend and other people that were inside the home.”

Beadling reportedly assaulted some of the people inside the house, Massey said. By the time police arrived, she had left in a white sedan. While officers were talking to the people at the house, Beadling drove by and was stopped by officers soon after.

Beadling had swelling above her right eye and dried blood around her mouth, and officers could smell alcohol, the Republican Journal reported. Officers attempted several times to obtain her license, but Beadling refused and was removed from her car and arrested.

Officers discovered Beadling’s 7-year-old daughter in the back seat, Massey said. The child was not injured and was released to the custody of a relative.

Regional School Unit 3’s website shows Beadling is a Spanish teacher at the high school. A school administrator could not be reached Thursday to comment on her employment status with the district.
