ST. ANTHONY — Authorities arrested a Fremont County woman Tuesday during an alleged shooting incident involving child protective services.
Fremont County Sheriff Len Humphries tells EastIdahoNews.com that around 4:30 p.m, deputies and CPS officials went to check on a child’s welfare at a home on Yellowstone Highway in St. Anthony. When officials arrived, a female resident of the home pointed a gun out the door and fired.
EastIdahoNews.com is not naming the woman, since as of Thursday morning, no charges had been filed against her.
No information was available about what led CPS and deputies to the house in the first place.
The shots allegedly fired by the woman did not hit anyone and at some point afterward, deputies were able to take her into custody. The woman was arrested for felony aggravated assault and booked into the Madison County Jail, which houses female inmates for Fremont County.
She was released Wednesday.
Fremont County Prosecutor’s Office told EastIdahoNews.com they are unable to comment on ongoing cases.
