Daniel Buck Teel, 31, of the Casper area, was charged with aggravated assault.

Accord to police affidavit, Teel was talking with another man at the VFW Powder River Post bar on First Street Sunday night, when Teel is said to have attacked the man with repeated punches to the face, with Teel pushing down another man before resuming the punches to the first man.

Teel was said to have exited the bar at the request of the bartender. Consistent with the alleged victim’s account, witnesses describe and surveillance video shows Teel talking to the man and then striking him, apparently without provocation.

The alleged victim went to the Wyoming Medical Center with a broken jaw, and it was through the medical report that police became aware of the alleged assault.

Teel was spotted at a convenience store and arrested early Monday morning.

Assistant District Attorney Joshua Stensaas noted that Teel had an extensive history of assault, resisting, and failures to appear and asked for a bond of 30,000 dollars cash or surety.

Teel asked Circuit Court Judge Steven Brown to lower the bond to 29,000 dollars, which Judge Brown did. Teel also asked for a psychological evaluation and Judge Brown said that would be considered as the case moves forward.
