Police were dispatched to La Quinta Hotel in Silverthorne on Nov. 20, to reports of vandalism after a drunk man had gotten sick in the hotel bathroom. When a sergeant arrived, she searched for the man and found out he had been at Old Chicago but was kicked out due to intoxication.

Later on, the man returned to the hotel and started acting strangely to the hotel staff. When the sergeant arrived, the man took a fighting stance and began swearing and threatening her. She called for backup, and the man was taken into custody without incident.


An officer was dispatched to Main Street in Breckenridge following a report of an intoxicated man with possible hypothermia. While the man appeared to be intoxicated, he was able to walk, stand and answer simple questions.

Another officer said a warrant for the man’s arrest had been signed that day. When the officer told the man of the warrant, he was “highly agitated,” as he had been released from jail earlier that day. The man had a blood-alcohol level of .288.

The officer arrested the man and took him to Summit Medical Center to be cleared before he was transported to jail.


An officer was dispatched to the Breckenridge Transfer Center on Dec. 3, after a man sitting in the hallway refused to leave. The officer told the man the Transfer Center is closed after 11 p.m.

The man, who smelled strongly of alcohol and had bloodshot eyes, said he had a friend who he could stay with but was unable to contact him. After blowing a .27, the man said he did not want to leave or go to detox.

The man was taken into protective custody as he was highly intoxicated, would not go to detox and because temperatures outside were below freezing.


Breckenridge Ski Resort security reported ski pass fraud on Dec. 7 at the base of Peak 8. According to security, the man had used a lift ticket registered to another man to gain access to a chairlift.

A woman called police on Dec. 6 after she noticed damage to the front grill and bumper of her 2015 Toyota Highlander.

Officers took photos of her vehicle and were advised that there were no cameras present at the scene.
