RIVERTON, Wyo. -- Fremont County commissioners have approved using a special prosecutor to handle a case against a Riverton police officer's wife who is accused of using a stun gun during a bar fight.

Angela K. Ladd, of Riverton, faces a single charge of misdemeanor battery. The 32-year-old is accused of using her personal Taser on Clay Johnson, of Hudson, during the confrontation last October.

Court documents say the 27-year-old Johnson faces his own separate charges, including punching off-duty officer Dan Ladd in the face during the incident.

Angela Ladd and Johnson have pleaded not guilty, and both have jury trials set for March 22.
