At 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 28 Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputies and Dillon Police Department officers responded to a report of a man urinating in the hallway at Sunrise Apartments in Keystone.
Upon their arrival law enforcement officers spoke to a witness who said he was replacing carpeting in a unit located on the second floor when he noticed a 26-year-old Keystone man and a resident of Sunrise Apartments urinating on a couch the witness moved into the hallway. When the witness confronted the man, he became violent and pushed the witness up against the wall. The witness told officers the force of the man’s push caused his head to whip back against the wall, causing him pain.
The witness then subdued the man and pinned him to the ground until law enforcement officers arrived, according to reports.
During the course of their interview with the witness, officers asked if he wanted to press charges against the man, which he said he did. The owner of the unit also was at the scene and told officers the couch was valued at an estimated $100.
Officers then tried to place the man into custody, but he resisted and tried to elbow one of the deputies. Several officers had to wrestle the man to the ground in order to place him into custody, according to police reports.
The man was booked into Summit County Jail on suspicion of obstruction, resisting arrest, third-degree assault and criminal mischief of less than $500.
