LYMAN, Maine — A broken-down vehicle led police to a woman with a warrant for driving to endanger, and she wound up under arrest.

York County Major William King said Deputy Gil Hudson was on patrol Tuesday morning around 8 when he passed a vehicle without license plates on the side of South Waterboro Road.

The officer found a note on the vehicle indicating it was broken down and with the owner’s phone number, and since he considered the parked vehicle a road hazard, Hudson contacted the owner.

The owner, Jennifer Noon, 32, of Waterboro, admitted the vehicle was hers but was not cooperative with Hudson, according to King.

Noon allegedly first gave the deputy a false name, but called him back five minutes later and provided Hudson with her identity, King said.

Hudson later discovered Noon had the warrant for driving to endanger, King said, so she was arrested and brought to the York County Jail. She is scheduled to appear in court later Wednesday.
