At 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31 Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputies assisted Silverthorne Police Department officers in responding to a report of a woman who was intoxicated or possibly suffering from a psychotic episode.

According to police reports, the woman’s roommate picked her up at the Silverthorne Recreation Center after work. The woman appeared to be intoxicated, the roommate later told officers.

Back at their apartment, the woman became verbally abusive, according to reports. The roommate called his boss to say he was going to be late because of a problem at home. While on the phone, the woman’s verbal assaults escalated and the roommate told his boss to call 911 before hanging up, according to reports.

The woman then went downstairs and broke a front door window. The roommate followed the woman downstairs and found her crawling down Riley Road towards Rainbow Drive on her hands and knees.

Officers radioed for an ambulance to transport the woman to Summit Medical Center. While en route, the woman told paramedics she had broken the window to escape from a man who was trying to sexually assault her. That information was relayed back to officers on the scene who were unable to confirm signs of a struggle inside the apartment. The window also appeared to have been broken from the outside, as all of the broken glass was located inside the residence, according to reports.

Despite being in the company of police officers, who followed the ambulance to the hospital, the woman provided Summit Medical Center staff with a fake name, date of birth and social security number. It was later determined the woman had acquired care at Summit Medical Center on several previous occasions. On each of those occasions the woman provided the same fake name, according to reports.

Before receiving medical treatment, a Summit Medical Center security guard conducted a pat down of the woman and found a glass pipe consistent with consuming illegal substances, reports stated. The woman also underwent a Breathalyzer test, which returned a blood-alcohol content of .27, according to reports.

Officers were unable to interview the woman at the hospital due to her being sedated by hospital staff. She was later transferred to Summit County Jail and booked on suspicion of dissemination of false information to obtain hospital care and false reporting.

An additional charge of burglary was added due to the woman having an outstanding warrant issued by the Colorado Department of Corrections, according to reports.

man assaults bunkmate in Copper Mountain

At 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29 Copper Security guards and Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a report of assault in the 50 block of Beeler Place in Copper Mountain.

Upon their arrival, law enforcement officers learned a man was attacked by his 46-year-old male roommate.

According to reports, the victim was asleep in the bottom bunk of a shared room when his top bunk roommate began punching him. The victim told officers he was punched about 10 to 15 times.

The man was apparently upset about being locked out of their apartment. Copper Security guards found the man eating potato chips off the floor in the hallway and let the man into the apartment just before the alleged assault, according to records.

When asked by law enforcement officers why he allegedly attacked his roommate, the man said the two were involved in a scuffle earlier in the evening and that the victim had pushed him off the top bunk, causing injury to his hip. Officers were not able to confirm any signs of injury to the man, according to reports.

When officers told the man they could not locate a single injury to corroborate his side of the story, the man replied, “I’m a better fighter,” according to police reports.

Officers noticed an odor of alcohol coming from the man’s breath and asked him to submit to a Breathalyzer test. Despite telling officers he had only consumed two beers that night, the man blew, at approximately 3:15 a.m., a .217, records stated.

The man was placed into custody and booked into Summit County Jail on suspicion of third-degree assault and menacing.
