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.
