Donald L. Wyman
A steady visitor to the Lincoln County justice system is once again in jail, this time for writing three bad checks.
Donald L. Wyman, 49, of North Platte was arrested Saturday for hanging bad paper at ABC Auto for car parts, at Town and Country Western Wear and a third at the Philips County Bank, according to prosecutors.
Wyman appeared Monday via video in Lincoln County Court to be arraigned. Wyman was apparently in a gruff mood at the time. He interrupted Lincoln County Judge Michael Piccolo several times to discuss other charges and things not pertinent to these charges.
Wyman said a charge of DUS should be dropped. He once raised his voice and pointed his finger at the camera for emphasis. Piccolo, being very patient, told Wyman a couple of times that he needed to discuss those things with his attorney and focus on the business at hand.
Piccolo seemed on the verge of charging Wyman with contempt of court before Wyman settled down.
Piccolo set a preliminary hearing for July 27.
Wyman has a long record. He’s been charged before with contempt of court, and no less than five counts of failure to appear, five protection order violations, a stalking charge, one charge of terroristic threats, a charge of intimidation and several DUI and DUS charges.
Wyman was once cited for operating a motorized bicycle on city streets, after he collided with a Jeep Cherokee at an unmarked intersection.
Some of the past protection order violations come from him calling an ex-girlfriend more than 40 times and leaving threatening and vulgar messages, according to court records.
