- Chet Killsree, 42, of Riverton, was arrested for probation violation at about 9:45 a.m. Friday on Snowberry Lane in Riverton.
- Catherine Thulin, 37, of Springville, Utah, was arrested for driving under the influence, notice required of driver and open container at about 10:50 p.m. Friday in the 10600 block of Wyoming Highway 789 in Riverton.
- Michael Timbana, 31, of Fort Washakie, was arrested for driving under the influence, fleeing/attempting to elude, registration violation, driving while under suspension and lighted lamps and illuminating. According to reports, he allegedly drank several shots of rum and crashed his 1993 Ford Truck into an apartment building in the 800 block of North Second Street in Lander. A Fremont County Sheriff's deputy was patrolling on North Second Street when he said he observed Timbana's vehicle approaching and headed north. The deputy said the vehicle was operating without headlights and had swerved into the oncoming lane of traffic. The deputy reportedly turned and attempted to stop the vehicle in the 600 block of North Second Street. When the deputy turned on his emergency lights, the vehicle reportedly increased speed for two blocks before side-swiping two parked cars along North Second Street. The vehicle then continued forward and struck the apartment building, crashing into the living room. According to reports, two adults and two children were inside of the apartment when Timbana drove through their home, but none of the home's occupants was injured in the crash as they were in a different portion of the home when the incident happened. Officials said Timbana and his 36-year-old female passenger both had to be extricated from the vehicle, and they both were taken to Lander Regional Hospital. After he was medically cleared, Timbana was arrested and transported to the Fremont County Jail. Officials took a sample of Timbana's blood, but they will not know his alleged level of intoxication until results come back.
