Nicholas Stone Given Probation For Weapons Incident

A Casper man involved in an incident that prompted four schools to lock down earlier this year will avoid jail time.

Twenty-five year old Nicholas Stone was given three-to-five years of probation, after pleading guilty to one charge of possession of a deadly weapon with unlawful intent.

Casper police say in mid-May, Stone had been drinking and got into an argument with his girlfriend.

He then left and walked to his parents’ home on the 4100 block of Benton Avenue but left his cell phone behind.

Later that morning, his girlfriend returned the phone to him and confronted him about some text messages he had received.

Prosecutors say Stone then slapped his girlfriend in the face and retrieved an unloaded handgun but never pointed it at her.

Officers arrived a short time later, prompting nearby schools to lock down for several hours.

Stone eventually surrendered and when interviewed, said he got the gun to use as a scare tactic toward his girlfriend.

He claims he loaded it only after police arrived on the scene.
