Comments Off on Raymond A. Sharp, 24, of Casper, Claims To Be Fired On By Group Of “White Women” – Arrested For Being Under The Influence of Methamphetamine

A Casper man was arrested by police, after reporting to law enforcement that he was being shot at by several females. The suspect was eventually booked into jail on a recommended charge of Being Under the Influence of Methamphetamine.

According to arrest paperwork, officers responded to an area of East Yellowstone Highway and Beverly Street for a report of shots fired in the area. Police say that 24-year-old Raymond A. Sharp was reporting that he had been running all over Casper, pursued by several white females in a gold colored SUV and a truck.

Sharp claimed that the women had been shooting at him. He further claimed to have been pursued all over town; near the National 9 Inn- Showboat Motel, North Casper, and Evansville. Sharp said that the women possessed guns like shotguns and pistols. Sharp eventually called the police from a Casper gas station.

Dispatch had not had any other reports of shots being fired in any of the areas where Sharp had claimed to go.

Officers say that Sharp spoke very rapidly, made jerky movements with his body, and was unable to stop moving while speaking with officers. Based on these and other criteria, officers say they believed Sharp to be under the influence of a stimulant.

Sharp initially advised that he had not done drugs in a while, he also told officers that he was hallucinating. Officers say that Sharp later refused to tell them where he had bought methamphetamine, but instead said that he had been given a quarter gram of the drug, saying that he “banged a quarter of meth yesterday.”

When asked how the drug affected his mental state, police quote Sharp as answering “it makes me feel invincible.” When officers informed Sharp that, based on his symptoms, investigators believed Sharp had taken more than a quarter gram of methamphetamine, Sharp is quoted as responding “no, but that was good [expletive.]”

All of those cited or arrested are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law. Charges are subject to change following official filings from the Natrona County District Attorney’s Office.
