Wyo. Man Sentenced for Failed Pond Jump

The Associated Press
SHERIDAN, Wyo.
A man who drove an old car into a pond in a failed attempt to jump over it,
Evel Knievel-style, has been sentenced to 270 days in jail.

Wayland Justin Williams, 24, of Sheridan, pleaded guilty Tuesday to property
destruction, dispensing an offensive matter in a pond and abandoning a motor
vehicle on state land.

Circuit Judge John Sampson fined him $690. For driving through a fence,
Williams must also pay $200 to a rancher who holds a state permit to graze
livestock on the land.

According to court documents, Williams polluted the bass pond with oil and
gasoline when he drove the old Buick into it.

States the Sheridan County sheriff's report: "Wayland claimed he had tried
to jump the pond with the green Buick, and that he would have made it had he
built a ramp."

The incident and other damage to the 8,000-acre tract of state land prompted
the state Board of Land Commissioners to close the area to motorized
vehicles Jan. 1-July 1.

Sheriff Dave Hofmeier was pleased with the sentence.

"It's also nice to see a severe punishment for damaging our state lands.
This will be a message to the rest of the public, and hopefully we can get
better care of our state lands," he said.

Wonder what one jail-day costs the State of Wyoming?
