(MUNCIE) - An Indianapolis woman faces a battery charge after she attacked another woman she spotted littering on Earth Day, police said.

Andrea Jane Ginther, 44, told police she was driving on Muncie's south side Sunday when she saw a woman throw a piece of paper on the ground, the Muncie Star Press reported.

Ginther, who told police she "does not take littering lightly," stopped to confront the woman near Memorial Drive and Mulberry Street.

When officers arrived, they found Ginther holding the other woman by the hair and punching her in the face, police said.

Officers said both women fought back when they tried to stop the fight.

Ginther was arrested on preliminary charges of battery resulting in bodily injury, resisting law enforcement and disorderly conduct.

The other woman, Mercadies Lanette Kirby, 23, of Muncie, told police that Ginther tried to run her down with her SUV. She was arrested on a preliminary charge of disorderly conduct.
