(Riverton, Wyo.) – A Riverton man, who was later found to be under the influence of methamphetamine and marijuana, allegedly incorrectly reported to deputies that he had been restrained and beaten in his home.

“A Riverton man reported being tied up, gagged, and beaten inside his home located within the Garden’s North Trailer Park Thursday night,” Fremont County Undersheriff Ryan Lee reported. “Deputies were unable to substantiate any of the allegations and suspected the man to be under the influence of methamphetamine. In the end, 39-year-old Nathon Brewer admitted to using drugs and a urinalysis test confirmed he was under the influence of methamphetamine and marijuana.

Lee said Brewer was arrested for two counts of Use of a Controlled Substance and a bond violation order from a previous drug charge.

“In a related incident a woman reported her home in Garden’s North had been entered and a jacket was missing from within,” Lee said. “Brewer admitted to entering the home and taking the jacket because he was not wearing a shirt and was cold. The woman did not want to pursue charges; the jacket was returned.”
