Summit County Police Blotter: Altercation in cheese aisle

Man arrested after allegedly hitting woman

A man who allegedly hit a woman at a Breckenridge bar, starting a fight with several other people, was arrested on charges of assault Nov. 23.

The man admitted to making sexual advances toward the woman on previous occasions, but denied hitting anyone the night of the fight, according to a report from the Breckenridge Police Department.

The woman and her boyfriend told authorities the suspect had approached her inappropriately again that night and became violent when they both asked him to stop. Several witnesses reported the suspect punched the woman in the face and knocked her to the ground, inciting a fight involving several other people outside the bar, the report stated.

The suspect claimed the woman's boyfriend and his friends "choked him out."

He was arrested for "assault and harassment," the report stated.

Breck PD: Heroin paraphernalia found in Breck hotel room

Hotel representatives found what appeared to be blood, heroin residue and drug paraphernalia after the people staying in the room left quickly after a late check out.

Authorities reportedly found dozens of used and clean syringes, razors and apparently dried blood on towels in the room, according to a report from the Breckenridge Police Department.

The room was in disarray when authorities arrived, with food and drinks left around, and cigarette burns on the bed.

Officers reportedly also discovered a handmade tool apparently used for "the cooking down of drugs to be injected into the body via a syringe," as well as an unidentified partial pill on the kitchen floor in the unit, the report stated.

Residue on one of the syringes tested positive presumptive for heroin and/or ecstasy, according to the report.

District Attorney Mark Hurlbert told police it would be difficult to prosecute without an admission.

Man who crashed car reportedly had drugs

A man who crashed his vehicle on Boreas Pass appeared to be under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident and was later found with a generic form of Oxycodone in his possession, according to a report from the Summit County Sheriff's Office.

The driver reportedly hit a tree after losing control of his car on Boreas Pass Road, according to the report. When deputies noticed he was exhibiting signs of intoxication and was wanted on a warrant out of Summit County for failure to appear, they arrested him.

A pill bottle containing 21 pills later identified to be a generic form of the prescription drug were found with his property at the jail. The man identified other unidentified pills as "Ritalin," the report stated.

He was booked on charged with DUI, careless driving and two counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance, according to the report.
