On Thursday, March 10 at approximately 4:10 pm Casper Police Officers responded to the area of 15th and Maple Street for a report of a disturbance after people were reported yelling and screaming. Dispatch also advised officers that a male had a knife, and had put it in his car door. Upon arrival at the scene, according to reports, officers spoke with a male next to a vehicle that did not have any plates on it. Officers spoke with a women in the area who explained to officers that she was dropping off her children at Cottonwood Elementary and observed a blue sedan driven by a male, "race by" and the driver hollered explanatory words to her and her passenger. Due to the disturbance, and what she considered to be "dangerous driving," near the school she followed the driver in order to get his plate registration and notify the police. Once she caught up with the vehicle she learned that it did not have any plates on it. Reports continue to show that the driver of the blue sedan, identified as Duane Kraft, pulled over at 15th and Maple Street, got out the vehicle and quickly approached the two women and began yelling profanities towards them. The woman got out of her vehicle, according to reports and confronted the male about his erratic driving and obscene language in public. She noted in court records, that Kraft had a drawn knife in his hand as he approached her. The woman reported that she felt threatened and got back in her vehicle. Kraft then returned to his vehicle. Officers later interviewed Kraft who reported substantially that he had been followed by women, so he stopped to get out and confront her. He admitted he had a "kitchen knife" in his hand which he showed to officers. While speaking with Kraft officers learned that he was already on probation. Based on Kraft's erratic behavior during the incident, he was arrested and charged with Breach of Peace and transported to NCDC. *Total Arrests Reported:* 19 *Calls:* Casper Police Department responded to* 307* calls including six assaults, thirteen disturbances, eight drugs, three family fights, two frauds, two harassment, three hit and runs, two indecent exposures, two loud music, two prowlers, and five public intoxication. *Arrests:* *Natrona County Sheriff's Office* Thomas W Branstetter, hold for WSP, Criminal Warrant.
