Michael Litgen Given Probation For Gun Related Incident
A Casper man is banned from carrying any weapons as a part of his sentence from a gun incident last summer.
Michael Litgen was given a five-to-six year suspended prison sentence, with four years of probation, after pleading guilty to one count of threatening to use a deadly weapon.
Casper police say in June of 2012, Litgen was asked to leave a bar and then he pointed a .40 caliber handgun against a male customer’s neck.
Investigators identified Litgen from a surveillance video taken inside the bar.
When questioned by police, he first said that he was not at the bar and did not have a gun, but then later changed his story and said the other person put his hands on Litgen first, prompting him to draw his weapon.
Prosecutors told a judge that Litgen has a number of previous firearm related convictions.
He has also been ordered not to enter anyplace that sells alcohol, and to take anger management counseling.
