Wanted Man Facing Another Felony Charge After Allegedly Putting Laramie County Deputy in Stranglehold

According to a department Facebook post, the deputy had served 48-year-old Michael English with an order of protection and was attempting to arrest English on a felony warrant for strangulation, when English placed him in a stranglehold.

"The deputy overpowered English and arrested him," the post reads.

English was booked into the Laramie County Detention Center for felony interference with a peace officer - bodily injury, a crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

He was also booked on two Laramie County Circuit Court warrants, the one for felony strangulation and misdemeanor domestic battery signed by Judge Thomas Lee on May 2, 2024, and one for failure to appear on an original charge of misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance signed by Judge Sean Chambers on April 18, 2024.

The deputy was taken to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center for treatment and later released.
