Trooper arrested on suspicion of violating protection order

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper has been arrested on suspicion of violating an order of protection by reportedly throwing rocks at a woman's house.

Cheyenne police arrested 31-year-old Robert King at about 11 p.m. Monday.

Police spokesman Kevin Malatesta says King was the focus of a felony vandalism investigation that began on Feb. 16. The patrol suspended him with pay the next day. Malatesta says officers have forwarded the results of the vandalism investigation to the Laramie County District Attorney's office for review and potential prosecution.

Malatesta wouldn't say why the woman obtained the protection order or whether it had anything to do with the February incident.

King was scheduled to make an initial appearance in Laramie County Circuit Court on Wednesday. He has been a trooper since December 2008.
