One Wyo GOP County Chair Cited After Fight With Another Chair

GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) – Police in Gillette have cited one Republican Party county chairman for a fight with another one at the state GOP convention Saturday night in Gillete. The fight happened outside the Cam-Plex Wyoming Center, the site of the annual convention.

Gillette Police Lt. Brent Wasson says the incident began when Albany County Chairman Michael Pearce got in an argument inside the Cam-Plex with Carbon County Chairman Joey Correnti.

The pair took the dispute outside, where police say Pearce punched Correnti in the head and Correnti tackled Pearce. Correnti’s attorney says his client “did nothing wrong.”
