Summit County police blotter: Repeat offender fights his way back to jail

At 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 10 Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a report of a fight at a residence off Cartier Court in Keystone.

According to witness statements, a young man and his girlfriend were having an argument in the man’s bedroom when a roommate entered and starting hitting the man in the body and the face.

The man was able to defend himself enough that the fight did not escalate beyond the two trading a few punches. The man was able to dial 911, according to police reports.

When deputies arrived the roommate was outside of the apartment. Officers noticed he had blood on his shirt and was walking with a limp. Inside, deputies found the man was bleeding from his nose.

Although the man said he did not want to press criminal charges, deputies discovered the roommate was on parole for aggravated robbery. He was placed into custody and first transported to Summit Medical Center for medical treatment where he was diagnosed with a sprained wrist and a sprained ankle.

He was later transported to Summit County Jail and booked on suspicion of third-degree assault.

Deputies show mercy on warrant attempt

At 8:15 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5 Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputies attempted to serve a Silverthorne man with a failure to appear warrant on a previous driving under the influence charge.

Deputies were able to contact the man at his residence, which was in a poor state, according to police reports. In addition to witnessing several 1.5-liter liquor bottles in varying degrees of consumption strewn about the residence, the man told deputies he was under the influence of pain killers and muscle relaxers because of a recent back injury.

The man also told deputies he was a heavy drinker, but was in the process of detoxing because of the accident. The man was shaking “profusely,” according to reports.

Deputies first transported the man to Summit Medical Center for jail clearance where doctors decided to admit the man after eight hours of evaluation due to his poor health and withdrawal symptoms.

Deputies acquired a personal recognizance bond from Summit County Court on the man’s behalf. Deputies also contacted Summit County Social Services, a son-in-law and a daughter about the man’s health.

Although the man said he did not want to press criminal charges, deputies discovered the roommate was on parole for aggravated robbery.
