Waterville, Maine – Heidi Everson, 42, had her 17-month-old toddler in the car when it crashed into a house on Oak Street and later assaulted a nurse at Inland Hospital, police said.
As if we all were not able to tell from Everson’s mugshot…it was determined that Everson was under the influence of drugs at the time of the crash and clearly at the time of the mugshot photo session as well.

The child was in a car seat, but the seat was not secured, so it tumbled on impact, Deputy police Chief Charles Rumsey said Monday. Neither mother nor daughter was injured, he said.
“The car hit the steps, and the steps are at least partially composed of concrete,” Rumsey said. “So as the car hit the curb and went up the hill and then hit the stairs and struck the house, it was just shredding the engine and the underside of the car so that when the tow truck pulled the car off the stairs, there were engine components basically falling off it.”
Everson, 42, of 13 Oak St., Apt. 5, was later arrested and taken to Kennebec County jail in Augusta, and her daughter was taken by the state Department of Health and Human Services because police were not able to find family members willing or able to take her, Rumsey said.
Everson is charged with operating under the influence of drugs, a class C felony because she has two prior OUI convictions; assault, a class D misdemeanor, as she tried to force her way into a room at Inland where her daughter was being examined and assaulted a nurse in the process; endangering the welfare of a child, a class D misdemeanor, for driving under the influence with a child in the car; and driving to endanger, a class E misdemeanor, Rumsey said.
Despite how horrible this situation was, the mugshot has to be one of the best we have ever seen. We are really stretching here to find the positive in this situation and the mugshot seems to be about the only thing we can find.
