A 26-year-old man is in jail in Baker City, OR after being arrested on a variety of charges by Oregon State Police.

 Richland man had previous run-in with SWAT Team

31-year-old Darrin Yeater of Richland was in the crosshairs of Oregon State Troopers following his alleged involvement in an accident near the junction of I-84 and Oregon State Route 7. However, it turned out he was not because the crash did not actually happen.

However, during the investigation on June 1st, OSP Troopers learned of multiple outstanding warrants for Yeater, and he failed to provide a valid ID.  He was also suspected of providing false information.
