At about six-thirty Monday evening, the Casper Police Department and the Wyoming Highway Patrol responded to the vicinity of Poplar and I-Twenty-Five for a report of a suspected impaired motorist who had been in a collision.

Twenty-seven-year-old, Lynn Earl Poppell, is accused of running his pick-up truck into a concrete barrier in the North bound lane of the interstate. Witnesses stated in police reports that he then fled the scene, parking his truck on the Poplar exit off-ramp.

Several Citizens followed Poppell and reported that he ran towards the Dairy Queen and changed shirts before he ran across the street to the Burger King parking lot where he was cornered by officers.

According to affidavit, Poppell initially lied to police about his identity but when he offered his actual name, it was revealed that he has three prior DUI convictions, a suspended driver’s license, and two outstanding warrants for arrest in Natrona County and Colorado.

Poppell allegedly told police that he had injected meth and smoked marijuana that day and a significant amount of the two drugs were found in his backpack that he was carrying.

Poppell was arrested and transported to the Natrona County Detention Center with charges of Driving Under the Influence, Driving Under Suspension, Interference, and Leaving the Scene of a Property Damage Collision.
