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.

Pedestrian under the Influence, East Fox Farm Road, Nov. 19, LCSO

The Laramie County Sheriff’s Office is charging a 59-year-old transient Cheyenne man with pedestrian under the influence after they responded to the 1800 block of East Fox Farm Road for a call of a man chasing cars.

A booking sheet states a deputy found him standing in the middle of the road yelling at nobody. When deputies tried talking to him, he kicked rocks and yelled that they were not cleaning up the roads. When asked to step to the side of the road, the man said he was staying where he was because he was the only one doing anything to clean the roads.

He continued to pace back and forth while yelling at nothing. A deputy had to block traffic because the man wasn’t paying attention and kept walking back and forth.

He was taken into custody, and taken to the Laramie County Detention Center.

Interfering/Obstructing, East 13th Street, Nov. 17, CPD

A 33-year-old transient Cheyenne woman is charged with misdemeanor counts of interfering/obstructing and refusing to obey after police were called to a suspicious person at 7 p.m. on the 2100 block of East 13th Street.

Police say they were told a suspect was walking around a Toyota Camry hitting it with a metal pole. A responding officer reported seeing a person near the Camry with a long object later identified as a cane.

The officer pulled behind the vehicle and asked the woman to come speak. She refused, saying she was looking for something. The officer saw her enter a passenger compartment and dig through items and pick up a bag to dig through.

While attempting to detain her, the woman resisted. Police told her several times to stop resisting and relax, and they were eventually able to take her into custody, a booking sheet states. During a search of her, she tried twisting away despite officers’ orders to stop. She also initially refused to get into the patrol car.

After she was pushed into the seat, she was taken to the Laramie County Detention Center.

DUI, Dell Range Boulevard, Nov. 19, CPD

Police responding to a man down report on the 3400 block of Dell Range Boulevard have charged a 25-year-old Byesville, Ohio, man with DUI and interfering/obstructing.

Officers turned off the vehicle and attempted to wake the man. He rolled his head around and spat, but wasn’t talking or waking up. Eventually, officers were able to wake him and they could smell alcohol on his breath, the document states.
