Arioso was taken to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center for minor injuries and cleared for jail around 4:30 a.m. the following morning.

Later that day, the Laramie County District Attorney's Office charged Arioso with aggravated assault and battery - threatens to use a drawn deadly weapon, a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

Due to his uncooperativeness, Arioso has yet to make his initial appearance in Laramie County Circuit Court.

He's scheduled to appear before Judge Thomas Lee this afternoon, May 9, at 2 p.m.

3:45 P.M. UPDATE:

Arioso was crossed off today's jail court list and moved to tomorrow's.


Arioso was reportedly taken to the hospital and therefore crossed off today's jail court list and moved to Monday's list.

They may not be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but make no bones about it, police dogs play a vital role in the fight against crime.

In many situations, they're the first ones to put their lives on the line to protect their human partners, proving that not all heroes wear capes, some wear fur coats.
