Keener was arrested in June by officers investigating drug trafficking. Keener was driving when officers initiated a pursuit.

Her co-defendant, Christopher Eads, shot at pursuing officers, assaulted a woman, stole her car, assaulted a Glenrock police officer and stole his car, abandoned it and stole another car, leading officers on a pursuit that ended in a standoff in Casper.
