(Wyo.)-Governor Mead To Give Award To Wounded Park Ranger
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Gov. Matt Mead will honor a park ranger
with Wyoming State Parks and Cultural Resources who was wounded by
a gunman last year at Glendo Reservoir.
Philip Martindale will receive the American Police Hall of Fame's
Law Enforcement Purple Heart on Thursday in the governor's office.
Martindale was shot in the chest by a drunken driving suspect
who fled after being stopped on the east side of Glendo Reservoir.
Martindale and a Platte County sheriff's deputy pursued the man and
attempted to arrest him, but he fired a gun, wounding Martindale.
Law enforcement returned fire, killing the suspect.
