City Councilor Refuses to Comment About Alleged Altercation
The city of Casper will move forward with an internal investigation into the conduct of Ward II city councilor Craig Hedquist.
The investigation comes amid allegations that Hedquist threatened a city employee during a discussion about street closures on Casper’s south side.
The altercation allegedly took place during an Aug. 28 meeting. The city employee in question, engineer Andrew Beamer, has since dropped a disturbing the peace charge.
Hedquist owns Hedquist Construction, a Casper-based company that deals with road construction and rehabilitation.
Hedquist was in attendance for Tuesday night’s Casper City Council meeting but refused to talk to the press.
