Cheyenne Man Says Ex-Girlfriend Swerved at Him, So He Shot at Her

Nickelson says when N.L. started driving down the road towards him, she swerved towards him, so he pulled his handgun from his right pocket and fired two rounds into the rear driver's side of her Jeep.

Police say N.L. and three other witnesses told them that Nickelson shot two rounds into N.L.'s Jeep while she was driving away.

Police say there were two holes consistent with bullet holes in the rear driver's side of N.L.'s Jeep.

Nickelson is scheduled to make his initial appearance in front of Laramie County Circuit Court Judge Antoinette Williams at 9:45 a.m. tomorrow, April 23.


Nickelson was seen Tuesday morning on one count of aggravated assault.

His bond was set at $3,000 cash or surety and his preliminary hearing was scheduled for May 1 at 3:30 p.m.
