Antoine Lewis

A burglar accidentally broke into the residence of the Wyoming governor on Tuesday. Antoine Lewis, 35, was searching for valuables to sell for cash when he broke into the gated estate of Wyoming Governor Matt Mead.

Police say Lewis was armed with a hunting knife when he entered the governor's residence and tripped an alarm.

Police responded to the location within seconds and caught Lewis hiding in a bathroom. Officials say Lewis "tried to" attack an officer with his hunting knife before he was tackled to the floor by half a dozen officers.

Lewis was taken into custody and charged with aggravated burglary and criminal entry, police say.

According to the police affidavit, Lewis allegedly told his boss the day before that if he were to steal from people, he would target the rich because they have insurance to replace their valuables.

Lewis apparently missed the huge sign outside the gates that read: "GOVERNOR'S RESIDENCE.

    I bet he didn't even beak in, the doors are probably left unlocked as they are in most of the crime stories on ID---until someone gets killed.

  • MoniquetheGeek

  • You Could Never

  • sunni_daze

    He had a huge hunting knife, attacked a cop and broke into the Gov. mansion...And he alive....

  • MoniquetheGeek

    If Wyoming can do right and arrest (not kill), dammit every other state can too.

  • Soda

    When one black person sees another there they probably smile at each other with such warmth and relief, the way I did each time I saw a black person the day after Obama's first presidential win. ?

  • JRock

    This dude looks exactly like the dude that supposedly stole an Oscar statute from someone last weekend during the Oscars. How he do that from prison? Must be his twin.

  • You Could Never

    THIS! We are only UNO percent of the population there! And he was robbing the Govenor!

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    He’s the true GOAT lol. He managed to get booked without not even a broken nail?. Innocent until proven guilty??. He should plea illiteracy and mental illness ??

  • Alicia.Ashe

  • Ni Ni



    He look like the ugly man who stole the Oscar... But crooks kill me how instant they turn 1 charge into several. Why try to strike the officer?

  • GeorgiaH

    I also hate them but not as much as a healthy, able bodied man who's a beggar.

  • ????? Kari ?????????

    So really he didn’t accidentally break in, he just picked the wrong mansion

  • Shawty

    He didn't miss the sign. He thought he hit the jackpot. Guess he didn't think about the alarm.

  • klwbaby

    He could be illiterate but I'm leaning more on the side that he didn't care who lived there.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I'm leaning towards illiteracy with his dumb ass!

  • i troll it like i see it

    Welllll we don't really know if he struck an officer. That's what they said. Either way he messed up big time.

  • pure_rachet

    I Love ID!!

  • Luv Pitties

    I read this whole article and said they actually have Black people in Wyoming? All while smh because the possibly small population of us that are there , everybody will probably be raked through the coals even more so now that this happened.

  • pure_rachet

    My sis lives in an area where there are no blacks. Even her husband is white. She went to the gas station an saw another black woman and they hugged!


    the ONE Black person in Wyoming!?! damn it ?

  • You Could Never

    lol. I BET

  • Ryan

    I saw on one of those Spanish channels (don't ask) that a sheriff in Mississippi was fired for taping himself smoking weed with his uniform hanging up next to him in the video. Bragging and ish. I think his name was Shane. It's definitely"you big dummy" season.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Don't worry I like the Spanish channels too. Novellas, Sabado Gigante, music videos, documentaries... I don't understand a thing but I watch anyway...

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Quitedeliteful

    Obviously Lewis can't read...

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Vonn

    Are they sure that he isn't the boyfriend of the governor's wife, or daughter ?

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Sooooooo he can "ACCIDENTLY " break into the governor's place...but PURPOSELY break into mine?.. no he broke into the right place. The governor's place is not off limits!

  • Quitedeliteful

    Lou is looking all sorry in his mugshot... He can kiss the free world goodbye for a long time because his new residence is under the jail. The good thing is he will never have to steal again because the State will provide three meals of goulash a day and a cement bed....

    Sandy Mae, what's up with these misleading headlines?

    You "mistakenly" enter a property if you believe it is your property or the property of someone who has given you permission to be there, but you turn out to be mistaken in that belief.

    If you are looking for a property to ROB or BURGLARIZE and break into it with such intended purpose, where exactly is the " mistake" in this scenario? The fact that the property was the Gov's residence simply means the defendant "STUPIDLY" broke into the property.

  • Panther Charleston

    At that "Sandy Mae" the cackle was real.?

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Its always the ones that actually attack an officer that get apprehended but the ones minding their own damn business get shot SMH!!

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    How dumb can you be? And I didn't know black people lived in Wyoming.

  • The Chosen One

    Darn, I was thinking the same thing.

  • angrysolo

    wut. drugs gotta go man.

  • SaltineCrackers

    That's a hard 35

  • NeverSurprised

    What the hell kind of inept security force do they have guarding the Governor"s mansion in Wyoming? In NY, a civilian couldn't get anywhere NEAR Cuomo's residence, much less actually enter with a knife. How did Wyoming hire their gubernatorial security team, from ads on Craiglist?

  • NeverSurprised

    You got that right.

  • 2telldatruth

    Let's see four grown adults....perhaps he was sneaking in as one their lovers and got caught.

  • 2telldatruth

    I said the same thing....or maybe the husband or the son.

  • Renee26


  • Guest

    One of my pet peeves is being around a grown competent and healthy human being that refuse to work.

  • Ms Thang

    I guess he's one of the few blacks that lives there

  • shun king

    not fired suspended

  • datjerk


  • shun king

  • shun king

  • Ebony N’ Sweet

    He will do 20 yrs in prision smh

  • LolaMob

    I highly doubt he cared whom residents it was ...LOL!! Like he would’ve actually cared not to if he knew ???

  • Trace da Ace

    DUMB ASS!!!! LMAO!!! He better be lucky he did not get shot going up in stupid...he deserves 20 years....just for pure ignorance...

  • Dr.Rue

    He looks special needs, too bad Black folks don't get to use that defense

  • Karen Brady

    Dumb mofo. And not because he got caught which I'm glad he did. Just his stupid rationale. And his face.

  • kimberly

    Do the crime , do the time.

  • Applebootay

    LOL! especially the face...

  • Liah


  • MRiGOThim

    I'm not disputing him breaking in, but saying he lunged or attacked an officer is highly doubtful due to him still being alive...

  • 2gr8ful

    Accidentally broke in the wrong house? Dumb criminal it does not matter what house you break into a crime is a crime.

  • Angela Flowers

    I took it as "we can't kill this nigg@ in the governor's home"...would definitely be a problem that city didn't want.

  • MRiGOThim

    lmao oh ok...

  • SandraRose

    It was a play on words, hon.

  • datATLboi

    I can hear this Donkey of the Day write up now.....Queue Charlemagne
