Charges Filed Following Arrest at UW Washakie Dining Center

January 29, 2023

A University of Wyoming student faces charges of trespassing, interference with a peace officer and possession of a controlled substance following an incident at UW’s Washakie Dining Center Saturday night.

The individual was arrested after the UW Police Department responded to a call about a disturbance at the dining center shortly after 6 p.m.

The citations are being handled in Albany County Circuit Court.

UW officials say the UWPD’s use of force in the arrest will be reviewed, as is standard procedure, and measures are being taken to protect the safety of the campus community. That includes the issuance of an order to stay off of campus against the accused individual.
