'He Returned With a Felony Warrant'

"I ran Michael's information through dispatch and he returned with a felony warrant for property destruction," the corporal said in their probable cause remarks.

The warrant was signed by Laramie County Circuit Court Judge Thomas Lee on May 20, 2024.

Pena was booked into the Laramie County Detention Center on his warrant and seen in Circuit Court the following morning, May 28.

Pena was granted a $2,500 signature bond, allowing him to be released from jail without having to post bail on the condition he returns to court for his preliminary hearing, which was set for June 5 at 1:30 p.m., and comply with any other conditions set by the court.

If convicted, Pena could face up to 10 years in prison, up to a $10,000 fine, or both.
