Cops: Man Uses Front-End Loader to Drop Son's Mobile Home
"John Bubar took the extraordinary step of using a large construction-grade front-end loader and backhoe to damage the mobile home," the sheriff says.   (York County Sheriff's Office)

Authorities say a Maine man used a front-end loader to repeatedly pick up and drop his son's mobile home during a family dispute and only stopped when he learned his 7-year-old grandson was inside. The York County sheriff's department says 50-year-old John Bubar was involved in a dispute with his 27-year-old son, Michael, on Sunday over rent payments and debris in the yard, the AP reports.

The son and his family live in a mobile home on John Bubar's property in Parsonsfield. Authorities say the elder Bubar damaged the mobile home with a front-end loader and backhoe. Bubar was arrested on a charge of domestic violence reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon. His grandson wasn't hurt. This was at least the seventh time this year police have been called to the property, reports the Portland Press Herald. (More Maine stories.)
