Prosecutors say a Casper man only made matters worse after trying to flee from law enforcement officers.

Fifty-five year old Roy Featheringill has pleaded not guilty to seven misdemeanor charges, including reckless endangerment, reckless driving, eluding and possession of a controlled substance.

According to the Wyoming Highway Patrol, on Saturday afternoon, February 9th, a trooper observed Featheringill driving around and not maintaining a single lane of travel.

When he was pulled over, investigators say Featheringill became combative when the trooper tried to forcibly remove him from the vehicle.

Featheringill started to move the vehicle forward with the trooper still partially inside and sped away once the trooper got out.

Featheringill eventually drove into a dead-end road and surrendered.

Investigators say a search uncovered two glass pipes with suspected meth residue inside the vehicle.

Featheringill is being held on $5,000 bond awaiting trial, and could receive between six months to a year in prison on each charge if convicted.
