Fremont County woman arrested after Riverton crash for DUI and meth possession
On Wednesday, March 13th Fremont County Sheriff’s were dispatched to the 1600 block of North Smith Road in Riverton for a vehicle crash.
A gray Chevrolet Impala was located in a ditch on the east side of the road.
Sheriff’s identified the driver, and only occupant, in the vehicle as 21-year-old Hailee Littlecoyote.
According to court documents, a Sheriff’s Deputy could smell, “a strong odor of alcohol emitting from her breath” and noted that her eyes were, “bloodshot and watery.” Littlecoyote admitted to drinking, “two tall beers before the crash.”
A field sobriety test was issued to Littlecoyote, and failed. A breath sample provided a reading of .15%
After EMS treated her for minor injuries, she was arrested for DUI. Additionally, Sheriff’s learned that Littlecoyote did not have a valid driver’s license.
During a vehicle search, A Sheriff’s Lieutenant located an empty fifth of rum, and a suspected methamphetamine pipe containing liquid.
Authorities quizzed Littlecoyote on the pipe, and she told them it did contain liquid methamphetamine. The total liquid weighed roughly 1.7 grams.
Littlecoyote now is facing one count of “Possession of Felony Amount of Methamphetamine in Liquid Form.” That is punishable by up to 7 years in jail. She also faces one count of “Driving or Having Control of a Vehicle While Under The Influence,” punishable by up to 6 months in jail and a fine of up to $750. She also is facing one count of “License Required.” That’s punishable by a fine of up to $750 and imprisonment of up to 90 days.
On April 3rd during a preliminary hearing, the court found sufficient probable cause to transfer the matter to District Court. Sentencing will take place at a later date.
All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
