Cheyenne Man Arrested, Charged After Barricading Himself With Gun
A 37-year-old Cheyenne man is facing aggravated and domestic assault charges after barricading himself with a gun inside a bedroom in his house Sunday night following a domestic incident.
According to Laramie County Sheriff's Office spokesman Brandon Warner, deputies were called to Brandon Creel's home at 505 Williams Street around 8:44 p.m. for a suicidal subject.
Warner says when deputies arrived on the scene, they found the suicidal Creel in possession of a knife and physically fighting with a family member.
"After being ordered to drop the knife, Creel barricaded himself in a bedroom and announced he had a gun and would use it," Warner said in a news release.
"Deputies secured the perimeter around the house and evacuated neighbors in the area for their safety," Warner added. "The situation was resolved with Creel’s surrender and arrest for aggravated assault and domestic violence."
Warner says, fortunately, no one was seriously injured in the whole incident.
Creel is currently being held in the Laramie County Detention Center on a $15,000 cash bond. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for next Thursday, May 11, at 3:30 p.m. in Laramie County Circuit Court.
