Chance M. Grein, 21 of 303 Second Street, Crossville was arrested and charged with driving while license suspended or revoked and an additional charge of improper operation of an ATV on the roadway. That followed a traffic stop around 2:30 Sunday afternoon when authorities recognized Grein on the ATV and knew him to be operating a vehicle without a license.

He was transported to the city county jail in Carmi for processing. His ATV was towed from the scene by  S & E Auto of Carmi.

White County Sheriff Doug Maier reported Adam A. Hoover, 32 of rural Carmi was picked up in Oklahoma over the weekend.
