Deputy arrests passenger after making traffic stop
April M. Wayman, 22, Lac du Flambeau, is charged with felony bail jumping, misdemeanor bail jumping, obstructing an officer and possession of drug paraphernalia.
On Dec. 2, 2015, Wayman appeared in Fond du Lac County Circuit Court on charges of felony marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.
She was released after posting a $1,000 cash bond with the conditions that she have no contact with Timothy Mann and not commit any crimes.
Mann, who was charged with similar crimes the same day, was released after posting a $2,500 cash bond. He failed to make an April 25 court hearing, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
On April 29, Waupaca County Deputy Patrick Gorchals was advised of a reckless driver in a black Dodge Ram eastbound on U.S. Highway 10 near County Trunk A in Waupaca.
After Gorchals took up a position on U.S. 10 near Haffner Road east of Weyauwega, Gorchals saw a black pickup swerving back and forth between lanes. He pulled out onto U.S. 10, followed the truck and initiated a traffic stop.
Gorchals reported seeing a lot of motion in the truck as he approached it.
The truck was registered to Mann, who was sitting in the back passenger seat.
According to the criminal complaint, a woman sitting in the driver’s seat appeared “out of it.” She did not respond when Gorchals knocked on the window, and the doors were locked.
The front passenger, identified as Wayman, eventually unlocked the doors.
Gorchals opened the driver’s side door and found the woman in the driver’s seat was semi-conscious and her eyes were glazed over.
The deputy asked the passengers if the woman had taken any drugs or had any health issues. They said they did not know, the complaint says. Gorchals called for an ambulance.
Sgt. Brandon Leschke and Officer Matt Batte, with the Weyauwega Police Department, arrived at the scene. They spoke with Wayman and told Gorchals they believed she was also on some type of drugs. Gorchals requested a second ambulance.
The officers administered Narcan to the driver, carried her out of the vehicle and laid her down on the ground.
The officers reported finding a glass pipe between the front passenger seat and door and another glass pipe with residue in Wayman’s purse.
Wayman denied doing any drugs and said the pipes belonged to Mann.
