JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - An Arizona man who pleaded guilty to struggling with an officer who was arresting him in Wyoming has been ordered to apologize.
Ronald Patrick Wear was arrested in June after reports of domestic violence in downtown Jackson. He was accused of shoving an officer who was trying to arrest him, grabbing his finger and bending it sideways. He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor interference and breach of peace.
The Jackson Hole News and Guide reports that in a written order last month, 9th Circuit Judge James Radda sentenced Wear to serve six months of unsupervised probation and pay $880 in fines and court fees. A 180-day jail sentence was suspended.
As a condition of his probation, Wear must write a letter apologizing to the officer.
It's not know where Wear is from in Arizona.
