A Glenrock man will avoid prison time, after admitting to breaking into a residence while intoxicated.

Bernie Fellars was given a three-to-five year suspended prison sentence with three years of probation, after he pleaded guilty to one charge of unlawful entry into an occupied structure.

The Natrona County Sheriff's Office says in late March, deputies received a call from the victim, who said Fellars had broken down the door to a residence on the 1600 block of Chamberlin Road, and was trying to break into the bedroom

When they arrived, they initially heard pounding coming from inside, and later a female scream.

When they found Fellars, they took him into custody.

According to deputies, he appeared and smelled very intoxicated, then became non-compliant and obscene.

The victim said Fellars had been drinking earlier, then he started yelling and screaming at her, at which point she retreated into the residence.
