On Saturday, December 27, 2014, at 1:22 A.M., Teton County deputies were dispatched to the 10000 block of South Highway 89, Pub Place, on the report of a disturbance in which one person had pulled a firearm.
While deputies were in route the subject who reportedly pulled the firearm fled the area in a pickup truck and headed south towards Hoback Junction. A short time later a deputy initiated a high risk stop on the suspect vehicle near the Hoback Market. The driver, 22 year old Russell Nicholson of Daniel, Wyoming, was detained without incident at that time and a loaded firearm was also recovered from the pickup.
As deputies conducted their investigation into the incident at Pub Place, Nicholson was arrested and charged with driving under suspension, driving without an ignition interlock device, and driving under the influence of alcohol. At the conclusion of the investigation at Pub Place, Nicholson was also charged with felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Nicholson was booked into the Teton County Jail with charges forwarded to the prosecutor's office.
