Arrestee Calls Officer a ‘Shetland Pony Perspirator’
A man was arrested in Casper on Saturday after officers received a call that a male was throwing fireworks out of a hotel window.
Police officers responded to the Showboat Motel early Saturday morning after the night manager reported that 60-year-old Gene Stratton Carney was throwing fireworks out of a window and disturbing guests.
After entering Carney’s hotel room, police observed various fireworks packages scattered across the floor- including “Popper” fireworks and “Ladyfingers” firecrackers.
Officers placed Carney under arrest and transported him to the Natrona County Detention Center.
While en-route, Carney called the driving police officer a “Shetland Pony Perspirator” and a “Wyoming Cowgirl” among other slurs.
Carney faces charges of disturbing the peace and igniting and possessing fireworks in the city.
