ANDOVER, Mass. (AP) — A 57-year-old Massachusetts woman has been accused of vandalizing a Donald Trump campaign sign and nearly running over the sign's owner.

Andover Police Chief Patrick Keefe says Susan Bryant, of North Reading, is charged with defacing property and assault with a dangerous weapon.

The encounter happened early Saturday in front of an Andover home. Police say the homeowner confronted Bryant when he caught her spray-painting his sign. The man told police he had to run out of the way of Bryant's vehicle as she drove off.

Police say Bryant is responsible for defacing prior signs on the property. She'll likely be arraigned Monday in Lawrence. It couldn't be immediately determined if she has a lawyer.
