Parking Disagreement Sends Two Men to Jail
A confrontation over a parking issue sends two Casper men to jail.
A heated argument over a parking space ends with two Casper men facing disturbing the peace charges.
Shortly after three-thirty Saturday morning, police responded to an assault report called in by Rudolph Baker.
According to affidavit, Baker told police that he was assaulted by an intoxicated Brad Hamilton, who lived in the next room over.
In a police interview, Hamilton told officers, that Baker had parked only ten inches from his friend’s vehicle, apparently in retaliation for Hamilton’s friend taking Baker’s parking spot the previous day.
According to witnesses, Hamilton allegedly confronted Baker about the parking issue which quickly turned into the two exchanging threats of physical violence. The verbal confrontation began to escalate when Hamilton moved to rush Baker.
Baker allegedly pulled out a box-cutter knife which caused Hamilton to back off because of an apparent comment Baker had made about getting off of murder charges in Florida.
Neither Baker or Hamilton were injured, but both were arrested for disturbing the peace and transported to the Natrona County Detention Center.
