A man accused of threatening construction workers downtown with a machete pleaded not guilty Monday afternoon in Laramie County District Court.
Nigel Latham, who is charged with disarming a peace officer, child endangering and unlawful contact, had a status hearing related to attorney conflict of interest. Latham also wrote a letter to Sharpe expressing his frustration with the way his case was being handled.

Latham is now being represented by defense attorney Brian Quinn, who Latham said he is happy with. Latham’s trial is currently scheduled for Nov. 5.

A man accused of threatening construction workers downtown with a machete pleaded not guilty Monday afternoon in Laramie County District Court.

Laramie Harris is charged with possession of a deadly weapon, and his trial is scheduled for Feb. 4. At his arraignment, his defense attorney asked the court for a bond reduction because he doesn’t have the financial resources to post his $1,500 bond.

District Judge Steven Sharpe denied the request, however, because the alleged crime occurred when Harris was released on bond for a domestic violence case.

According to court documents:

On July 16, Harris was downtown at 19th Street and Central Avenue when he began yelling at construction workers. He then appeared to wave a machete above his head.

The Cheyenne Police Department put out social media posts and inquiries seeking Harris’ identity, and he was later found by CPD when he approached an officer during the Cheyenne Frontier Days pancake breakfast.

He approached the officer to thank him for his service, and he was arrested when the officer recognized him from the surveillance footage of the incident.
