LIMINGTON: Police say firefighters helped a woman who was stranded on a rock in a Maine river get safely back to shore, where she was immediately arrested on an outstanding warrant.

Police say 37-year-old Kimberly Hayford and a man became stranded Saturday night after their inflatable raft was punctured by a rock in the Saco River near Limington. Firefighters coaxed the pair off the rock, and they were able to get back to safety.

A sheriff's deputy took their IDs and checked for any outstanding warrants, which the department says is standard procedure.

Hayford was wanted for not paying a $720 fine related to a conviction for operating under the influence.

Hayford's arraignment is Monday. She couldn't be reached immediately for comment. It was unknown if she had a lawyer.
