A Gillette woman won an argument with her boyfriend last week by dropping him off at the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office, where authorities arrested him on three outstanding warrants.
A 27-year-old woman on Feb. 27 was driving her car while her 32-year-old boyfriend, Levi Wazelle, yelled at her, according to the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office.
Lt. Paul Pownall told Cowboy State Daily that Wazelle was yelling at the woman and would not get out of her car – so she drove him to the sheriff’s office.
While the girlfriend met with deputies, Wazelle fled on foot.
There were three municipal warrants for his arrest: failure to pay for driving under suspension and driving without insurance or registration, according to the sheriff’s office statement.
“He decided to vacate the area as fast as he could,” said Pownall, adding that it didn’t take long for deputies to catch up with Wazelle.
Pownall didn’t know for certain if the woman intended for Wazelle to be arrested or if she was simply seeking a safe place.
“She probably identified that he had warrants and she was tired of him yelling and screaming at her, so it was kind of a win for everyone,” said Pownall.
It would make the deputies’ jobs a lot easier if everyone would simply drop suspects off for them, said Pownall.
A week after the incident, Wazelle is no longer in police custody, Pownall said.
