Man receives probation for drunken driving accident

Nov 8, 2013 - From staff reports

A Northern Arapaho man has been sentenced to three years of probation for his involvement in a drunken driving accident on the Wind River Indian Reservation.

Court documents state Lee Spoonhunter, 35, was driving under the influence November 2012 when the traffic crash occurred, resulting in injuries to another person.

Spoonhunter was charged in May with felony assault resulting in serious bodily injury. He was arrested May 31 and pleaded not guilty to the charge against him June 6. He was released that day on a $20,000 unsecured bond.

Spoonhunter changed his plea to "guilty" during an Aug. 12 hearing in Cheyenne. He was sentenced Oct. 21 to three years of probation, with the first months to be served on home confinement; a $100 special assessment; and a full restitution amount to be determined within 90 days.

The case was investigated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
