BATH, Maine — A Bath woman was arrested Sunday and charged with domestic violence criminal stalking and criminal trespass after allegedly smearing dog feces on the windshield of a man’s vehicle, then waiting in her car for him to come outside.
Keirsten Harte, 40, was also charged with operating under the influence, according to Bath Police Lt. Robert Savary. The three charges are all Class D misdemeanors.
Officers went to Somerset Place on Sunday evening after receiving a report from a friend of the alleged 43-year-old victim that dog feces had been smeared on his windshield and that Harte was waiting in her car outside the victim’s vehicle, according to the arrest report.
“There was a history between the two of them,” Savary said, and police had served a no-trespassing warning several weeks earlier. “Based on their past history and the circumstances, and the fact that it was an ongoing issue, we charged her with domestic violence stalking.”
Harte was released from Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset on $1,000 bail, and is scheduled to appear in West Bath District Court on March 8.
