     On Sunday, March 11th, deputies arrested 26 year old BETHANI JEAN BEYER of rural Mountain Home on drug and traffic charges after being dispatched to a disturbance call on Baxter CR 632.  At approximately 3:14 PM, the Sheriff’s Office was notified that a verbal altercation was taking place on Baxter CR 632 between two people in two separate vehicles.  Deputies began to respond to the location and were given descriptions of the vehicles involved.  Deputies encountered one of the vehicles coming toward them on Baxter CR 57 and noted that it was speeding in excess of the posted limit.  Deputies turned around and initiated a vehicle stop.  The driver was determined to be BETHANI JEAN BEYER.

     BEYER stated she did not have a driver license, nor could she produce proof of liability insurance on the vehicle. It was later determined that BEYER had a suspended driver license.
