A Topaz Ranch Estates man who tried to flee deputies by jumping over a gate ended up refracturing his wrist.

Bradley Stribling, 30, has allegedly been avoiding deputies and had two warrants issued out of East Fork Justice Court for his arrest.

Stribling was arrested March 26 on Eagle Mountain Road after he was spotted after he was hemmed in by deputies.

Stribling attempted to flee by diving over a gate. He was taken for medical treatment for his arms.

He is scheduled to appear in East Fork Justice Court on April 14.

Stribling has done two prison sentences as a result of convictions in Douglas County, including one for theft in 2009 and another for being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm in 2018. He was acquitted of a home invasion charge by a jury in September 2020. 

• A woman with a history of getting into drunken collisions in Douglas County waived extradition to Idaho on Wednesday.

Crystal Charlie Dean, 43, was taken into custody on the warrant on March 26.

She was sentenced to up to six years in prison in February 2017 for being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm in connection with an Indian Hills collision where she had a .222 blood alcohol content.

Then on Oct. 16, 2020, almost four years to the day after the previous collision, she drove into a ditch along East Valley Road with a .53 blood alcohol content.

She was ordered to serve six months in jail before being dishonorably discharged from probation.

In the meantime, Idaho issued a warrant in connection with a 10-year prison sentence Dean received for two burglaries.

• A Gardnerville Ranchos couple was taken into custody on March 24 after deputies spotted a 2006 Tahoe that had an expired registration.

Daniel Scott Trenholm was driving the vehicle with a suspended license.

During a traffic stop just south of the Muller Lane Parkway roundabout, deputies allegedly found a loaded hypodermic whose contents tested positive for methamphetamine.

Trenholm’s passenger, Jean Antonia Luna allegedly had prescription opiates and colorful pills deputies believed might have been related to recent fentanyl overdoses.

Both were taken into custody and are being held on $3,000 bail.

Attorney John Malone was appointed to represent Luna while Matthew Ence is representing Trenholm.

• A Southern Nevada woman was taken into custody after a deputy reported nearly being hit by her on March 24 while driving on Kingsbury Grade.

The 54-year-old was heading up the Grade at 60 in a 45 mph zone when she crossed the centerline requiring the deputy to pull over to avoid a collision.

He turned around and caught up to her in the Doolittle Curves where she pulled over. He said that when he got out, she pulled away again, but eventually stopped, according to the deputy’s report.

She was arrested after she failed a field sobriety test. A deputy found an open bottle of vodka in the vehicle with her.

A later breathylizer test in the jail indicated her BAC was .209. She faces misdemeanor charges of second driving under the influence, driving on a license suspended for DUI, speeding, and having an open container among others.
