CHEYENNE, Wyo. - Prosecutors say a 31-year-old Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper stalked a woman while on duty in his patrol vehicle.
Robert D. King has been charged with felony stalking, felony property destruction and misdemeanor protection order violation.
The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports that King, who remains in custody, had his first court appearance on Wednesday. Magistrate Ericka Smith set King's bail at $5,000 cash.
King's attorney, Alan Harding of Laramie, indicated King will contest the charges.
King has been on paid administrative leave from the patrol since Feb. 17.
Charging documents say a GPS system installed in King's patrol car shows that King constantly drove through the woman's neighborhood. They also accuse King of following the woman in his patrol car and keying a car outside her house.
