Laramie man arrested for felony domestic battery

Laramie Police Department officers responded at about 9:45 a.m. Wednesday to the 2100 block of North 10th Street for the report of a domestic disturbance in progress.

As a result of the officers’ investigation, 28-year-old Thomas D. Massey, of Laramie, was arrested and charged with domestic battery. Massey has three prior convictions for domestic battery in South Carolina, within 10 years of this arrest, making this a felony offense. He also has two additional pending charges of domestic battery stemming from Laramie Police Department investigations in December 2018. Massey’s bond has not been set on the newest charge, and he remains incarcerated at the Albany County Detention Center.
