Arriving officers reported that Gibbons matched the description given by the reporting party. He obeyed commands to lie down, and he was taken into custody, a booking sheet states.

Witnesses told police there was a fight and one man was knocked out. Gibbons had a firearm, and he fired it twice into the air. He then pointed it at the bar manager before running away, the booking sheet states.

Gibbons was taken to the Laramie County Detention Center.
