In Fremont County Sheriff's reports from Friday to Tuesday morning:

- Michael Anderson, 32, of Riverton, was arrested for criminal trespass.

- During the same time period, ambulance crews were dispatched 60 times and firefighters responded to 36 calls for service.

- The suspect in the May 8 crash on Red Canyon Road south of Lander is facing additional charges after police say he provided them with a false identification.

Sheriff's Capt. Ryan Lee said Joseph Seelaus Cady, 48, of Shoshoni, assumed the name Paul Cady and portrayed himself to the arresting sheriff's deputy as Paul Cady.

"Joe Cady was also in possession of a Wyoming driver's license when he was arrested Tuesday night, bearing the name Paul Cady," Lee said in a news release.

Lee said Cady was operating a 1995 Ford pickup truck with two other unknown occupants when he allegedly wrecked into a power pole on Red Canyon Road the evening of May 8, effectively knocking out power and telephone service for the area.

Lee said it appeared Cady was involved in an altercation with his male passenger when the vehicle became disabled. Cady's passengers left the area after flagging down a motorist who took them to Lander.

Lee said two deputy sheriffs in the area investigating the collision found Cady hiding about 100 yards away from the vehicle behind some brush.

Cady was arrested for DUI and interference with police.

"He faces additional charges in the State of Wyoming for possessing and providing the false identification," Lee said.
