Man in court for officer shooting

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) -- A Wyoming man appeared in court for the first time after allegedly shooting an officer in the foot.

Joseph Jacquez appeared Monday in Laramie County Circuit Court where he was charged with one count of aggravated assault and battery-serious bodily injury, or aggravated assault and injury-bodily injury with a weapon, or interference with a peace officer-bodily injury.

Jacquez also was charged with attempted interference with a peace officer-disarming and first-offense domestic battery.

Jacquez was arrested Friday after officers responded to a domestic disturbance call. Jacquez pulled an officer into the house when police attempted to arrest him.

Jackson to allow snowmobile event

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) -- The Jackson town council has reversed an earlier decision and will allow a snowmobile racing event in the Wyoming ski resort town.

The council on Monday night overturned its decision to deny Snow King Mountain Resort a permit allowing them to host the AMSOIL International Series of Champions Snocross in early December.

The council approved the permit on a 3-1 vote.

The council had originally denied the permit at its Sept. 5 meeting mainly because of late-night noise associated with the event.
