Charges Made In Park Assault

Court1

The suspect in an assault that occurred Friday in Grand Teton National Park has now made an appearance in federal court in Jackson where he was charged with one count of assault with a dangerous weapon with intent to do bodily harm, and one count of assault which resulted in serious bodily injury. 32 year-old Vincent Hagey of Las Vegas, Nevada appeared before U.S. Magistrate James K. Lubing, and has subsequently been detained at Teton County Jail pending other court actions.  The felony charges stem from an incident 1:30 am Friday at the employee dormitory adjacent to Jackson Lake Lodge. Hagey allegedly stabbed a person in the abdomen during the altercation.  Park rangers arrived shortly after the emergency call to investigate and took Hagey into custody. The victim was provided medical care on-scene by National Park Service emergency services personnel and then transported by a park ambulance to St. John’s Medical Center for treatment. He has since been released.  Investigation into the case is still under way.  Park officials point out that such incidents are rare in Grand Teton National Park and are dealt with decisively.

    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
