Cheyenne Police Want Tougher Penalties for Eluding
"It's only a misdemeanor here in Wyoming," said Malatesta. "In a lot of the country there are aggravated portions to eluding."
"There are certainly circumstances where it fits to have eluding be a misdemeanor offense, but when somebody's putting the public at risk by engaging in very reckless driving, causing injuries and causing property damage that should be a felony," he added.
Malatesta says he's hopeful the Legislature will take up the issue when they convene in January.
