“He didn’t walk away,” Courtney said. “He attempted a physical escape. In the process he assaulted two staff members. He was not able to escape, our deputies were able to get there and take him into custody.”

According to jail records, Brown was booked in under recommended charges of Battery and a hold for Casper Re-Entry Center.

All of those cited or arrested are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law. Charges are subject to change following official filings from the Natrona County District Attorney’s Office.
