A Parsonsfield man has been arrested following an altercation about passed due rent that got destructive (and strange).

According to the KJ, John Bubar has been arrested after he had allegedly used a front-end loader and backhoe to damage a mobile home during a family dispute over rent payments and the condition of the yard.

York County deputies were called to deal with a dispute at a home on Pendexter Road in Parsonsfield just after 2 yesterday (Sunday) afternoon.  The dispute, about unpaid rent and trash in the yard, was between John Bubar and his 27 year old son Michael Bubar.

According to Sheriff Bill King, “John Bubar took the extraordinary step of using a large construction grade front-end loader and backhoe to damage the mobile home.”

Using the machine, Bubar allegedly picked up and dropped the home 3 times, causing significant damage.  He only stopped when he realized his 7 year old grandson was in the mobile home.  Fortunately, the boy was not injured during the incident.

He has been arrested for domestic violence reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon. Bail has been set at $5,000.  He is expected to be arraigned via video conference today (Monday) and is expected back in court on February 10th.
