Officer injured in DUI bust

By News Director Leslie Stratmoen

RIVERTON, Wyo. – In a follow-up to yesterday’s news, we’ve learned that it was Riverton police officer John Gardner who was injured over the weekend in a struggle with a suspect. He’s OK, just nursing a sprained knee he twisted while trying to arrest 32-year-old Zachary Bebout.

Police Capt. Eric Murphy said today that Bebout put up quite a fight Sunday morning when he tried to run from officers after being stopped for drunk driving. By the time they caught him, there were three officers involved in the chase and it took three shots from a TASER to bring him down. The police captain said the first two shots missed because TASER wires only reach about 25 feet.

They caught up with him a  couple blocks away from where he was stopped at the corner of South First Street and Madison Avenue. An officer had pulled him over because he saw him swerve into oncoming traffic and nearly hit parked cars. He took off running after stepping out of his vehicle, at the officer’s request, to undergo field sobriety tests.

The suspect gave warning he planned to run, according to the report.

 “I’m gonna jet,” he said.

He did, and the chase was on.

Because of that decision, Bebout is now facing charges for resisting arrest, along with the charge of driving under the influence of alcohol. He blew a BAC of .13, which is five points over the presumed drunk driving limit of .08. He faced those charges yesterday afternoon in court, after spending the night in jail.

Makes my confidece in you people dwindlw even more. Lots of people know what he did and how your dept handled it push it under the rug as always.

@grudge – it sounds like you harbor some pretty ill feelings towards this person. Nice spelling and grammar by the way. I am sure that the website removed your previous post because they assumed it was written by an illiterate 3rd grader, not the conspiracy theories you are suggesting.

No one is taking this person serious with (DELETED BY MANAGEMENT) finger pointing.

—————————————————————-
Meantime,
Perhaps RPD and other law enforcement should begin their “squeeze play” (DELETED BY MANAGEMENT).

It sounds like this 32-year-old needs to start acting just a little more responsible than in past with law enforcement.

@fore6_5 you would have the same feeelings towards this person if he had done to you what he has done to someone in my family. The worst possible thing you can do to a woman. There are no conspiracy theories only cold hard facts that not only this web site but the “authorities” don’t want people to know about. I know the facts. Had it not been for daddy covering up the incident for him he would be in prison still where he and other low lifes that do these things belong. Just bury your head in the sand like everyone else until this happens to someone you know then talk!!!!!!!!! different story

I would imagine that it has more to do with hearsay than a conspiracy. I’m not saying what grudge said did or didn’t happen, but if it did “disappear” as he claims then Rivertonradio probably wouldn’t want to stick their neck out on something that could be classified as libel without some form of proof.

No I was kinda wanting to make a strong point about the 32-year-old. But, I guess I can’t use his name even though its posted.

@grudge, the RPD and Riverton justice system is about as subjectively prosecutorial as it gets. They enjoy making examples out of cases like this. I seem to remember other members of this family being front page on Riverton and Casper newspapers for criminal arrests and being punished like any other citizen. He will get what’s coming to him. On the other hand, libel is a pretty serious offense as well, so you should watch what you say. Also, if what you say is true and wasn’t prosecuted criminally, why did you not pursue it as a civil matter?

Why didn’t your girlfriend in 1999 go to authorities if something happened?
This makes no sense airing out laundry 11 years after this claim.
Calling people names will not get you noticed as a serious poster.

exactly D. Harry – it makes no sense. If something did happen, why wait til now to take it public. The Wyo media would have been all over a case like that and not let it be swept under the rug. Also, like I said earlier…why didn’t you pursue it in a civil matter?

A few last things Grudge – 1)yes, being 32 does give you the right to make mistakes. People make mistakes at 80 – you just must learn from those mistakes. 2) Saying “you are not only ignorant, but completely stupid” is redundant (as in mean the same thing) which sort of makes you look a little foolish for your lack of a basic vocabulary.

Actually ignorant and stupid are not redundant. One can be ignorant without being stupid. Ignorance implies a lack of knowledge. If knowledge of a subject if supplied to an ignorant person and that person is still unable to comprehend the subject then a case for stupid could be made.

I’m not sayin’…I’m just sayin’…

You say you went to both “RPD and LPD”?
If so, why? If it happened out of city limits? This would a be a Fremont County Sheriff’s Office civil complaint, not LPD or RPD.
A little English 101 Lesson
Ignorant
1 a : destitute of knowledge or education ; also : lacking knowledge or comprehension of the thing specified
b : resulting from or showing lack of knowledge or intelligence
2 : unaware, uninformed

Stupid
1 a : slow of mind : obtuse b : given to unintelligent decisions or acts : acting in an unintelligent or careless manner c : lacking intelligence or reason : brutish
2 : dulled in feeling or sensation : torpid
3 : marked by or resulting from unreasoned thinking or acting : senseless
4 a : lacking interest or point
b : vexatious, exasperating

“dickie is correct within reason”
As you can see they both pretty much correlate with each other.

correlate
1 : either of two things so related that one directly implies or is complementary to the other (as husband and wife)
2 : a phenomenon that accompanies another phenomenon, is usually parallel to it, and is related in some way to it

Neither term is exclusive of the other but they are not synonymous. The important thing is that we have handled our differences in a civil manner without resorting to name calling. Good humor and civility. Yeah, I know, that was an incomplete sentence.

I was just trying to lighten up the subject “referring the english lesson” for everyone here. As I did try to say something regarding attitudes back on [2010-04-28 11:07:25] post that most was deleted.

Listen, if something happened? Then, do something about it … you said you reported it to the RPD. Did she go to the hospital, police or any place regarding a quick health examination?
And, if you do have access, then, “no one is above the law” with proof of your claim. Bur, if you have no records or, have no access to records then, you might consider anger management.

Remember, the person you are eluding to accuse, “IS” innocent till “PROVEN” guilty. And, unless you have such proof? (If this is even true?) Then, you might want to consider a campaign on “rape awareness” for the public. As you seem very much so convinced.

Speaking of English lessons–Allude” and “elude” are frequently misused in place of each other, even though they’re about as different as broccoli and ice cream.

“Allude” means to refer to something in a casual or indirect way. Michelle alluded to my tardiness by glancing at her watch when I arrived. My wife alludes to her birthday a week in advance by leaving a Things-I-Want list on the refrigerator.

“Elude,” on the other hand, means to avoid or escape from by quickness or cunning. Justin eludes the police by hiding in a bush. I eluded the school bully—and a wedgie—by ducking behind the principal’s car.

Make sure to use these words correctly in your writing. Otherwise, picky agents and editors may try to elude you.

As much as I dislike the RPD, and the officer that was injured, I will say the other two officers handled this case responsibly. However, just because he has that infamous last name that seems to persuade much of the community, we must keep one thing in mind. To sweep an incident that the whole town knows about under the rug would be absolutely absurd. Someone would eventually want to know the outcome of this case, and if this did indeed disapear, some heads would roll. This includes from the judge and attorneys of the case to the Riverton Police Department. Another thing, no one in their right mind would risk their profession to hide this case. Judges, police, and attorneys would all be facing prosecution themselves if they hid this. I personally know Z.B. from school, and yes, I agree it is high time for him to grow up and act like an adult. I believe the judge on this will probably enforce the law to the letter with this delinquent adult. We also must keep in mind, that even though eluding the police and DUI are serious, they are not so serious that “dad” will try to bail him out. Finally, I can say that the RPD did something right, except for the one officer. Good job for the two of you.

grudge99 – racist? you are just bouncing all over the place aren’t you with the “R” terms? Racist, r*pist…whats next?Wyoghost is right, no one would have risked their professions to bury whatever you crime you are insisting happened. And if it happened within city limits, why would you notify the LPD? What jurisdiction would they have in the matter? If you did contact both departments why was a rape exam not conducted as I am sure they would have required a trip to the hospital. It sounds like you have a personal issue with mr. b that you need to let go of. Lastly, does no one remember two others of this “infamous” family being in the news for crimes that were not swept under the rug? Having a last name does not put you above the law – thats just ignorantly stupid.

That’s nice, grudge. Instead of taking anonymous pot shots at the “alleged rapist” 11 years after the fact and firing nasty comments at the posters on this site; how about next time you man up and take care of business at the time of the crime. If you had a legitimate beef the authorities would have taken action. I certainly don’t take you seriously, nor should anyone.
