BOWDOINHAM, Maine — An argument between two Bowdoinham men over driving abilities led one man to ram into the other man’s car with his own, according to Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Brett Strout.

Strout said Joshua Messer, 18, received a summons for criminal mischief about 8:30 p.m. Friday after he intentionally drove his vehicle into another on Hillcrest Lane in Bowdoinham. The collision caused minimal damage.

“The feud involved one person’s view of another person’s driving habits,” said Strout. “The one who got rammed was the one being criticized.”
