Glenrock residents packed their town hall Monday to voice outrage over the tasing of a 76-year-old man by police officers at a parade.

The man’s family called for the officers’ firing, and Police Chief Tom Sweet told the crowd “we probably didn’t do things the best way we could have.”

The Aug. 1 incident remains under investigation, but most of the people who addressed town leaders at a council meeting suggested the officers used excessive force when they tased Bud Grose at Glenrock’s annual Deer Creek Days event.

“They both, in my opinion, acted like doped up thugs,” Grose’s daughter-in-law, Pat Grose, said.

Glenrock Mayor Steve Cielinski and most of the town council apologized to residents and asked for patience, as agents with the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation examine whether any crimes were committed during the encounter.
