Hoback man charged in domestic disturbance

HOBACK, Wyo. — A rather confusing case of domestic disturbance and child endangerment is still under investigation, but one man has been charged.

The Teton County Sheriff’s Office responded to a disturbance call at around 9:40 p.m. Tuesday. Sgt. Clay Platt said the reporting party claimed someone had broken into his house.

Further investigation revealed the “intruder” was actually a “close friend” of the reporting party, Platt said. They got into an argument that turned physical and ended in shots being fired. Platt said alcohol was involved. A gunshot was fired, but there are “different stories” about how it happened. No one was hit or injured.

The reporting party’s three-year-old daughter was in the next room about 15-20 feet away.

Michael Miller, 29, has been charged with child endangerment from a parent or guardian and aggravated assault and battery.
