CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Patrick Jimenez has been sentenced to 18–24 months for felony methamphetamine possession and 248 days for interference with a peace officer. Judge Steven Sharp handed down the sentence.

The state dismissed one count of possession of marijuana and one count of breach of peace, but deviated from the plea agreement due to Jimenez’s non-compliance. He received 248 days credit for time served. Jimenez had pleaded guilty in accordance with the plea agreement on April 1, according to court records.

Officer Brengman responded to a noise disturbance on Nov. 4, 2023, at approximately 1:08 p.m. Loud rap music with vulgar language led Brengman to the alley behind the dispatched location, where Jimenez was sitting in front of a large speaker. Jimenez initially refused to provide identifying information, claiming his name was “George Jimenez.”

CPD dispatch couldn’t find anyone with that name and birth date but identified a “Danny Jimenez” with an active warrant out of Larimer County for theft. Jimenez eventually confirmed his real name and stated he used his middle name, “George.” His middle name is not George and Danny is not his first name, according to court documents.

When Officer Brengman attempted to arrest Jimenez, he fled into an open garage. Officer Tretter tackled and restrained him until he could be handcuffed. A search incident to arrest revealed 13.12 grams of methamphetamine, 1.5 grams of liquid THC and 0.5 grams of THC wax.

While being searched, Jimenez stated he intentionally gave a false name because he was aware he had a warrant for his arrest, but he had a Wyoming ID card with his correct information, according to an affidavit of probable cause.
