YUKON, Okla. – Crews were in an intense standoff with a suspect in Yukon on Friday afternoon.
Shortly before 4 p.m. on Friday, police officers and some ranchers were attempting to wrangle a pony.
It was a dangerous situation since the pony was trapped in the green space along I-40 and Czech Hall Rd., near Yukon.
Troopers shut down the outside lane of I-40 as crews shot the pony with a tranquilizer dart.
Fortunately, they were able to corral the little guy and get him in a trailer.
Drivers in the area are encouraged to use extreme caution.
