Shortly after noon, deputies received a report of a vehicle trespassing in the Bignell Hill area, the sheriff’s office reported.

A farmer said a car was stuck in his soybean field, and when he tried to help and talk to the occupants “they were very rude to the farmer,” the sheriff’s statement said.

Deputies went there and met with Emily Werts, 28, and Amy Norrie, 50, both of North Platte, who were in the car.

Their car did more than $300 in damage to the soybeans before it got stuck. Norrie and Werts were not as rude to the deputy, but were cited for criminal mischief and trespassing, the sheriff’s office said.

Also, Werts had a local warrant for failure to appear in court on a previous charge. In April, she was charged with obstruction of justice. She was jailed at the Lincoln County Detention Center.

The car was towed and impounded.

Alcohol was a factor, the sheriff’s statement said.
