A 17-year-old Irma man was arrested on Tuesday afternoon when a deputy investigated a disturbance at Lincoln Hills School.

The suspect has five other open cases at this time in Lincoln County Court. Due to his current court ordered commitment, the suspect was returned to Lincoln Hills School after his initial court appearance.
A 33-year-old Merrill woman was cited following a two vehicle crash late Wednesday night in the Town of Scott. The woman failed to yield from a stop sign and struck another vehicle.
