A vehicle pursuit in northeast Wyoming on April 11th has resulted in the arrest of a Bismarck, North Dakota man.

The pursuit began around 3:58 p.m. on the 11th after a Wyoming State Trooper attempted to stop a northbound red 2004 Toyota passenger car for speeding 84 mph in a 70 mph zone near mile post 221 on US Highway 85 approximately 29 miles south of Newcastle, Wyoming.

The Toyota failed to stop for the Trooper with speeds increasing up to 105 mph. Four miles into the pursuit near mile post 225 on US 85, the driver of the Toyota intentionally swerved off the highway causing the Toyota to roll multiple times.

The driver of the Toyota was identified as 22 year old Payton Glasser (male) of Bismarck, North Dakota. Mr. Glasser was taken by ground ambulance to Weston County Health Services in Newcastle and treated for injuries sustained from the crash.

Through the course of the investigation it was discovered that Glasser had been listed as a missing person on April 8th by the Bismarck, North Dakota Police Department.

After Glasser had received treatment at the hospital, he was booked into the Weston County Detention Center and has been charged with speeding, eluding and reckless driving.
