CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Here is a brief summary of notable crimes in and around Cheyenne, obtained through law enforcement reports compiled by the Cheyenne Police Department, the Laramie County Sheriff’s Office and the Wyoming Highway Patrol.

DUI, Interstate 80, Nov. 13, LCSO

A 40-year-old Wichita, Kansas, man is facing misdemeanor charges of failure to maintain a lane, possession of an open container, speeding and DUI after a 6:43 p.m. traffic stop on Interstate 80.

A Laramie County Sheriff’s Office deputy saw the man’s pickup increase speed from 87 to 99 mph while weaving in and out of the lane of travel, a booking sheet states. After the deputy turned on lights to initiate a traffic stop, the driver continued for a long distance on the shoulder at about 10 mph.

The deputy reported seeing several open containers of alcohol in the truck. The man was asked to participate in field sobriety tests, which he failed. He then refused a blood draw. The deputy received a warrant for the blood sample, and the man was taken to the Laramie County Detention Center.

Loitering, Westland Road, Nov. 13, CPD

An unidentified man is facing misdemeanor charges of loitering and refusing to identify to a police officer after police were called to the 1700 block of Westland Road at 1:15 p.m. for a report of a man refusing to leave.

The arriving officer saw the man looking in hotel room windows on the first floor, a booking sheet states. When the officer approached, the man tried walking away. When he stopped and began talking to the officer, he said his lips were chapped. The man refused to provide his name and talked in nonsensical circles about his lips being chapped, the document states.

The officer was told if the man could drink water he would say his name. He was given a bottle of water, which he took drinks from, but still refused to identify himself, the officer reported.

The document states a desk clerk and maid said the man showed up hours before and was hanging around the property. They said he told them he was calling a cab for a ride but he never left. They accused him of at one point attempting to force his way into the hotel office.

The man was taken to the Laramie County Detention Center, where he was charged as John Doe.

Resisting Arrest, East 20th Street, Nov. 13, CPD

Cheyenne police are charging a 45-year-old transient man with multiple misdemeanors, including resisting arrest, public intoxication, open container, refusing to obey and possession or use of a controlled substance.

Police say they were called at 12:35 p.m. to a collision with injuries at East 20th Street and Morrie Avenue. An officer reported the man was taken into custody with two sets of handcuffs. Police said he was involved in a disturbance due to the collision. Because the man tried walking away and refused to stop when ordered, police used their stun guns, a booking sheet states.

The man was taken to the Laramie County Detention Center, where he became uncooperative in the patrol vehicle in the sally port. He was removed from the vehicle and placed directly into a cell.
