GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. -- Grand Teton National Park officials say a seasonal concession employee from Arizona has been banned from the park for two years after pleading guilty to a driving charge.

Officials say Jackson Lake Lodge security officers called park rangers the night of Aug. 15 for help dealing with an intoxicated person. Park rangers say they had to use a stun gun to subdue 47-year-old Edwin Matthew Schmidt, of Fountain Hills, Ariz., and take him into custody.

Park officials say Schmidt pleaded guilty Tuesday to driving under the influence and to assaulting, resisting or impeding park rangers. He was sentenced to 20 days in custody, plus two years of probation, and was banned from the park for two years. He also can't have alcohol during that time.
