Witnesses told police that Albany County’s Republican Party chairman was drunk and responsible for the escalation in a fight with Carbon County’s chairman after the Wyoming Republican Party Convention in Gillette on Saturday.

Michael Pearce, Albany County’s Republican chairman, and Joey Correnti, Carbon County’s chairman, who also lost a 2016 challenge to Rep. Cathy Connolly, D-Laramie, were involved in a fight that left Pearce in a Gillette hospital recovering from surgery on Sunday.
