PARSONSFIELD, Maine (AP) — 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 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.

It wasn't immediately known if he has an attorney.
