A 25-year-old Merrill woman was arrested Tuesday evening on a bail jumping charge. A deputy stopped the vehicle she was operating at 6:34 p.m. A check showed the woman’s driver’s license was suspended and she was on bond through the Marathon County Court. As a condition of bond the woman was not allowed to operate a motor vehicle without a valid license.

A 34-year-old Rhinelander man was arrested early Friday morning after deputies investigated a suspicious person report in Tomahawk. When deputies made contact with the man they found he was wanted by the Wisconsin Department of Corrections for a probation violation. The K9 Nina checked the man’s vehicle and indicated it contained drugs. Deputies found numerous items of drug paraphernalia. The man was arrested on the warrant charge. Deputies are awaiting test results before forwarding drug charges to the Lincoln County District Attorney.
A 37-year-old Wausau man was injured following an ATV crash Sunday afternoon in the Town of Birch.
