DEXTER, Maine — A local woman was charged early Saturday morning with violating a harassment order, and her mother was charged an hour later after swearing at police when she picked her up, police say.

Alicia Rickard, 26, was intoxicated and at around 12:10 a.m. violated a protective order from harassment brought by a male in his 50s, a Dexter police officer said Sunday.

When Rickard’s mother, Lori Wampler, 45, also of Dexter, arrived to pick her up at the police station, Wampler “became belligerent and was asked to leave,” which is when she began to swear at officers, the police officer said.

Wampler was warned to calm down but failed to do so and was charged with disorderly conduct, he said.

In an unrelated incident, local police also charged Daniel Cookson, 35, with driving under the influence and leaving the scene of a property damage accident at around 9:15 p.m. after he reportedly struck a parked car just down the road from his Water Street home, the Dexter officer said.
