In Riverton police reports from Thursday to Friday morning:

The arrest occurred at 1:39 p.m. in the 700 block of North Federal Boulevard.

-At 6:42 p.m. on Thursday, police responded to a report of a fight at the Family Dollar at 524 Pershing Ave. involving five or six people.

RPD Capt. C.T. Smith said officers arrived and found an active fight involving eight people who refused to comply with the orders to stop fighting.

"Officers requested assistance, and members of the Fremont County Sheriff's Office and Wyoming Highway Patrol responded to assist," Smith said. "The Riverton police officers began to physically break up the fight, and as a result, Curtis Oldman actively resisted and was subdued by the use of a Taser."

Smith said officers identified the most prominent aggressors in the fight, and they were arrested and booked into the Fremont County Detention Center.

Oldman, 25, of Riverton, was arrested for three battery charges, possession of a controlled substance (marijuana) and resisting arrest.

Amanda Sixfeathers, 20, of Arapahoe, was arrested for battery, and Pamela Sixfeathers, 48, of Arapahoe, was arrested for battery and interfering with a police officer.

"There were no severe injuries suffered by any of the original combatants that required immediate medical attention, and no reported injuries were sustained by the officers involved," Smith said.

"Officers are still following up on this incident, and details to how the fight started (and) specific damage to the store's property are still under investigation."
