A Bridgeville woman is facing criminal charges after she was allegedly seen in Rehoboth Beach tearing a banner honoring military personnel from Delaware killed in Iraq and Vietnam.

According to court records, 21-year-old Mytia Dorman is charged with criminal mischief and criminal impersonation.

Rehoboth Beach police received a call that a woman in a red Obama T-shirt was trying to climb a pole near the Rehoboth bandstand that holds two of the Hometown Heroes banners about 12:45 a.m. Monday, Court records said. When an officer arrived, Dorman allegedly said the date that a Marine corporal was killed was incorrect on the banner, "so she was tearing it down."

Court records also allege Dorman gave a false name to the officer.
