Woman Rescued From River Only to Be Arrested on Outstanding Warrant: Cops
Kimberly Hayford, 37, was allegedly found to have a warrant under a former name.
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.
The pair then found themselves marooned on the rock, where they remained until firefighters were able to help them off, the Bangor Daily News reported.
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.
