A Maine woman who found herself stranded on a river over the weekend was rescued, but then immediately arrested after she was found to have an outstanding warrant, according to police in the town of Limington.

Kimberly Hayford and a male companion were reportedly drifting down the Saco River Saturday in an inflatable boat when their vessel was punctured on a rock.

But before she could breathe a sigh of relief, Hayford found herself in handcuffs.

First responders reportedly checked the pair's IDs for warrants as part of standard procedure.

That's when it was discovered that Hayford had a warrant for her arrest under a previous name for failure to pay a $720 fine, according to York County sheriff's deputies.
