Police then called out to Hicks by name and he reportedly got on his bicycle and started fleeing.

Police say Hicks was given multiple commands to stop but refused to listen even after looking back at them chasing him.

An officer then pulled his patrol vehicle in front of Hicks, who reportedly threw a backpack roughly 10 feet away from himself, and placed him under arrest.

Police say a search of the backpack revealed a glass pipe with suspected methamphetamine residue.

Police say when they ran Hicks' name, he came back with a misdemeanor warrant out of Natrona County for charges including assault, possession, interference, and domestic battery.

Hicks was booked into the Laramie County Detention Center and later charged with misdemeanor interference with a peace officer - no injury and possession of a controlled substance - third or subsequent offense, a felony punishable by up to five years in prison, up to a $5,000 fine, or both.

Hicks made his initial appearance in Laramie County Circuit Court on Friday afternoon, May 17, during which his bond was set at $2,000 cash and his preliminary hearing was scheduled for May 24 at 9:45 a.m.
