Tarren M. Wolsmann
Steven M. Terrell
Police put a man and a woman to jail Monday after separate fights -- one Friday at the hospital and another Monday at the carnival grounds near the Wild West Arena.
First, a delusional woman had to be restrained early Friday morning at the hospital, Police Information Officer Rodney Brown said.
Police were called to the Motel 6 parking lot around 1:30 a.m. Friday on a report of a suspicious woman wearing dark clothing and a gas mask, attempting to get into vehicles parked there.
The report was verified by another witness, who recalled seeing a woman dressed in a white dress and a gas mask.
A short time later, Tarren Wolsmann, 30, of Blair, was located by officers in MacDonald’s restaurant where she refused to leave.
Wolsmann allegedly grabbed a customer’s purse and demanded a ride to the hospital, even asking for an ambulance.
Brown said while waiting for an ambulance, Wolsmann got into a Lincoln County Deputy Sheriff’s car from the driver’s side and had to be removed and physically restrained.
Brown said she was combative and delusional.
She was taken to the Great Plains Regional Medical Center emergency room. At the ER, she slapped a hospital staff member.
Because Wolsmann was unresponsive and non-complaint with law enforcement and medical staff, she was placed under Emergency Protective Custody and kept at the hospital over the weekend.
At around 10:30 a.m. on Monday, following the investigation, Wolsmann was arrested and transported to the Lincoln County Detention Center, where she was charged with second-degree criminal mischief, attempted theft of a motor vehicle, and felony assault of a health care professional.
At around 12:45 p.m. on Monday, police went to the Great Plains Regional Medical Center on a report of an assault that had occurred at the Wild West Arena, 2800 W. Charlie Evans Drive.
A 56 year-old man told investigators that he had an argument Stephen Terrell, 36, of Indiana. He said Terrell intentionally kicked him in the face causing severe pain and serious injury, Brown said.
Brown said the victim and Terrell were both working at the carnival Fun House.
Officers contacted Terrell at the carnival and following further investigation determined there was probable cause to charge him with first-degree assault.
