RIVERTON, Wyoming — A former Riverton police officer has pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of aggravated assault.
The Riverton Ranger reports (http://bit.ly/1pZUysu ) that 42-year-old Frisco Saunders entered the plea Tuesday in Lander District Court.
Judge Marvin L. Tyler set trial for Nov. 3.
Prosecutors say the charge against Saunders stems from a June 2 incident in which he was exchanging custody of a child with his ex-wife, Tina Saunders.
According to a police statement, Tina Saunders reported her ex-husband argued with her, threatened to kill her, and then tried to hit her with his Chevrolet Suburban as she walked away. She told police the vehicle's side-view mirror struck her arm.
Frisco Saunders had served in the Riverton Police Department until early 2009.
