CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs police officer faces a federal kidnapping charge following what prosecutors allege was a violent confrontation with his wife at their home on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Cheyenne has filed a criminal complaint against William Arthur Curran. The complaint identifies Curran as a BIA police officer and a member of the Yankton Sioux Tribe of South Dakota.

The complaint alleges the officer’s wife reported her husband had handcuffed her and threatened to kill her at their home in Ft. Washakie on Monday evening. It states she called 911 while she was restrained.

Curran faces an initial court appearance Thursday in Casper. Court records don’t indicate that he has retained a lawyer yet.
