•An Oregon State Police trooper at 7:11 p.m. stopped a Ford Ranger heading west on Highway 730 near Interstate 82 because it was not maintaining a lane. During the stop, state police reported, the trooper saw the passenger, Jaime Jo Haines, 37, of 80542 Paterson Ferry Road, Apt. 56, Irrigon, was not wearing a seatbelt. That prompted a check on Haines, who happened to have a misdemeanor warrant for her arrest.

Circuit court records show Judge Eva Temple issued the warrant May 1 when Haines did not show up to court in Hermiston to answer to two counts of second-degree animal neglect of a horse. The trooper booked Haines into the Umatilla County Jail, Pendleton.

•Umatilla police arrested Richard Michael Payan, 51, of 196 Rio Senda St., Umatilla, for driving under the influence of intoxicants (alcohol).
