LAWRENCE, Kan., Jan. 21 (UPI) -- Police in Kansas said they arrested a woman accused of intentionally driving her vehicle through a home.

Lawrence police said Megan Wilson, 19, was arrested Wednesday after investigators determined she intentionally drove her vehicle through the home just before 9 a.m. Nov. 18 after arguing with someone inside, the Lawrence Journal-World reported Monday.
