A Minnesota woman faces criminal charges in connection with an incident at her ex-boyfriend's burial service in Fargo.

Blair Whitten is charged with reckless endangerment, according to a document from the Cass County Courthouse in North Dakota, in connection with the May 1 incident. She is accused of "[driving] her vehicle at people and in a manner and speed so as to willfully create a substantial risk of bodily injury to others."

Inforum reports it happened at Riverside Cemetery in Fargo, during the funeral for Whitten's former boyfriend. According to the paper, a witness saw Whitten drive across the cemetery, at a person as they approached her SUV.

KVRR says she drove over several graves in the process, but nobody was injured.
