CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) _ A man was dangled and dropped to his death from a hotel window by another man who had been screaming at the victim before letting go of his leg, police said Monday.

Brian Holloman, 39, who has no permanent address, was arrested Sunday night on suspicion of first-degree murder.

Witness Manuelita Gonzalez of Denver said she and her husband were walking by the Idleman Hotel when they heard screaming and saw a man being dangled from a third-floor window by another man.

The victim was being punched by the man, who was screaming, ``What did I ever do to you?″ Ms. Gonzalez said.

She could hear a third man in the background begging the man to pull the victim back into the room. A few minutes later the man let go of the victim’s leg and he fell, she said.

``The man hit headfirst into the ground,″ she said. ``It was horrible.″

The name of the 45-year-old victim also has not been released.
