WYOMING, Ohio, May 11 (UPI) -- A photograph of U.S. President Barack Obama is at the center of an Ohio legal case in which two women were arrested, authorities say.

Police in Wyoming, Ohio, allege Marla Anderson, 24, struggled with her mother while attempting to take the photograph of the newest president from a Wyoming home, the Cincinnati Enquirer said Monday.

Anderson was arrested Friday following the alleged conflict and nearly 10 hours later, police detained 31-year-old Tamika Cornwell, who allegedly drove Anderson to the Wyoming home.

Specific details, including the identity of Anderson's mother and the motive for the tussle, were not reported.

Hamilton County Municipal Judge Julia Stautberg Monday set Anderson's bond at $17,500 and Cornwell's at $12,500, the Enquirer said.

The newspaper said Anderson is facing charges of aggravated burglary and tampering with evidence. Cornwell, who allegedly brought 3-year-old son with her last Friday, stands accused of complicity to aiding and abetting, endangering children and tampering with evidence.
