Summit County police blotter: DUI suspect asks to be ‘locked up’
Ryan Summerlin December 13, 2013
At 1:30 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 30 Dillon Police Department officers and Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputies performed a traffic stop on a man suspected of driving under the influence in the 100 block of Gold Run Circle.
The man was weaving, according to police reports.
When asked by law enforcement officers to exit the vehicle, the man dropped his keys. When he went to pick them up, the man had to steady himself with his right hand on the ground, so not to fall over, according to police reports.
While talking to the man, officers detected an odor of alcohol on his breath and his words were slurred by a thick tongue, reports stated. When asked if he would perform voluntary roadside maneuvers, the man replied, “You might as well lock me up,” according to reports.
Officers again asked the man if he would perform roadside tests and the man replied, “no.” Based on their observations, officers placed the man into custody on suspicion of driving under the influence. After receiving a Miranda advisement, the man told officers he would not participate in any blood or breath tests at Summit County jail.
The man was therefore issued a summons and booked on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol or both, failure to maintain a lane and operating a motor vehicle without proof of insurance. The man also was issued a notice of revocation.
Frisco drunkard takes I-70 walkway back home
At 3:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 30 Frisco Police Department officers and Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to Interstate 70 eastbound, near milepost 203, for a report of an intoxicated man walking on the highway.
When located on I-70, officers attempted to clear the man through dispatch only to learn he had an outstanding warrant. The warrant, which carried a $250 bond, was a limited extradition warrant issued by the Vail Police Department because the man failed to appear in court on open container, alcohol possession by a minor and possession of cannabis charges, reports stated.
The man was placed into custody and searched on the scene. Officers found a blue container with a leafy green substance consistent with marijuana, reports stated. At Summit County jail the man was charged with fugitive of justice. Officers also weighed the marijuana, which came back at .1 grams.
Breckenridge squatter arrested for trespassing
At 1 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 2 Breckenridge Police Department officers and Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the 500 block of Blue Ridge Road for a suspected trespass.
Officers first performed a security check, which encompasses the checking of all of the doors and windows to ensure they are locked and secure from the exterior, according to police reports. One of the officers found a black glove and fresh footprints in the snow on the deck located at the rear of the residence. A sliding glass door providing access to the rear of the residence was unlocked, reports stated.
Officers then gave three K-9 announcements, which advise anyone inside to make themselves known, reports stated. The announcements were met with a response from inside.
Officers entered the home and searched it for the responding party, a man, who said he was dropped off by a friend and had permission to stay there. Officers contacted the owners of the residence via the Colorado Springs Police Department. The owners said no one was authorized to stay in their home.
The man was placed into custody and booked into Summit County jail on suspicion of first degree trespassing of a dwelling.
