Profane suspect arrested
A man accused of screaming swear words in the presence of children at the base area of a local ski resort was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest Dec. 26.
The man was contacted by resort security after it received multiple calls that he was cursing around kids. When security personnel approached the man and asked him to stop, the man reportedly responded that the “f***ing kids need to listen to me and maybe they will learn something,” according to a report from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.
Witnesses reported there were several children around age 5 or 6 nearby at the time. When authorities responded, they contacted the man and asked if he had an identification card he allegedly responded, “maybe, but I don’t have to f***ing give it to you.”
While deputies and supporting officers were taking the man into custody, he allegedly attempted to pull away and turn around, and then refused to walk to the patrol vehicle, according to the report.
SCSO: ‘Grabby’ female snowboarder charged with intoxication
A woman reportedly found lying in the snow at the top of a lift at a local ski resort was charged with a skier violation for intoxication after she reportedly got fresh with a resort employee.
The employee told sheriff’s office deputies he found the woman lying down outside of a lift shack, squirming. He reportedly brought her inside to check on her and she became, “inappropriate, grabby and mostly incoherent,” according to a report from the sheriff’s office.
She did not appear to understand his questions and answered him inappropriately, the report states.
With some coaxing and hand holding, the employee was able to convince the woman to accompany him to patrol headquarters, where he asked her several times for her pass, which he could reportedly see hanging from her pocket. The woman allegedly claimed she did not have a pass, according to the report.
The sheriff’s office responded, and the woman was transported off the hill by toboggan, at which time the woman said she had broken ribs and wanted medical assistance. She was transported to the hospital, where she gave an alcohol breath sample of .083, the report states.
The woman was also charged with felony violation of bond conditions, according to the report.
