Casper, Wyoming — Shortly before 4:00am, May 6th, 2021, Casper Police Officers were involved in an incident that resulted in a use of force action. At 3:54 am, Officers were in the area of East H Street and North Elma Street in Casper when they attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a vehicle. The two officers approached the vehicle to speak with the two occupants inside. At one point, the driver unexpectedly exited the vehicle, while the passenger identified as 42-year-old Thomas Roeber moved into the driver’s seat and attempted to flee the scene.
While Officer Jake Bigelow contacted the driver, Officer Andrew Linkowski began to take actions to stop the fleeing vehicle. Despite Linkowski’s efforts, the Roeber accelerated from the scene at a high rate of speed while officer Bigelow, still inside the vehicle with Roeber, continued to order Roeber to stop.
