CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Prosecutors say a 31-year-old Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper stalked a woman while on duty in his patrol vehicle.

Robert D. King has been charged with felony stalking, felony property destruction and misdemeanor protection order violation.

King is free after posting $5,000 cash bail Thursday.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/2mToLk6 ) that King had his first court appearance on Wednesday at which King's attorney, Alan Harding of Laramie, indicated King will contest the charges.

King has been on paid administrative leave from the patrol since Feb. 17.

Charging documents say a GPS system installed in King's patrol car shows that King constantly drove through the woman's neighborhood. They also accuse King of following the woman in his patrol car and keying a car outside her house.
