DILLON – A sheriff’s deputy was called to Dillon for a noise complaint because of a man revving his car engine in a condo parking lot. When the deputy arrived, the caller told him that the man was now lying on the ground moaning. When the deputy approached the man, he had moved to the porch of one of the units and was ringing the doorbell. The deputy asked for the man’s driver’s license, to which he replied “not until I get home,” then stated home was “here” when asked. The deputy asked how he knew it was home and the visibly intoxicated man answered “It’s building U.” When the deputy informed him he was standing in front of building S, he said, “Oh, I must have taken the wrong turn.” The man was unable to perform DUI tests because he was too drunk. He was arrested and while sitting in the back of the patrol car blew a wad of snot out of his nose, leaving a hunk dangling. He then attempted to swing his head in the deputy’s direction to sling the snot onto him. The deputy put a spit hood on the snotflinger and took him to jail.Double DUISILVERTHORNE – Silverthorne police pulled over a man in the parking lot of the True Value store in Silverthorne. The driver told police he parked at the business while he was waiting for his girlfriend, who had just been pulled over by another Silverthorne police officer. Trouble is, the man’s speech was slurred and the officer smelled alcohol on his breath. He failed the DUI test and blew a .141. He was taken to the Summit County Jail. And the girlfriend? She was there, waiting, already booked for her DUI.One strong margaritaFRISCO – Frisco police pulled over a man after reports that his passengers were hanging outside of the vehicle as he drove down Highway 9. He was also driving almost 20 miles per hour over the speed limit and weaving in and out of his lane. The driver first denied that people in his car were hanging out the windows, but later admitted that his pals were indeed not fully inside the car, saying “they were having a good time.”He agreed to a breath test and blew a .115 at about 11:20 p.m. He told the officer he had one margarita earlier that day around lunchtime. He was arrested for DUI and taken to jail.Strange theftKEYSTONE – A sheriff’s deputy was called to Keystone to investigate a missing pay phone. Seems somebody partially tore it off the wall, leaving scores of wires hanging out. A worker from the phone company came to repair the barely there phone. He emptied all the change out of the money compartment, then left for two hours to find somebody from building maintenance to help repair the wall. When he came back, the phone was missing. Searchers in a nearby dumpster turned up nothing.Editor’s note: All law enforcements accounts are rewritten from Summit County agency logs.
