summit daily news
SUMMIT COUNTY – An intoxicated, 43-year-old woman entered a motel room near Breckenridge one recent night trying to buy cocaine, scaring the 15-year-old girl in the room.
The girl said the woman, who appeared to be from Australia, was quite intoxicated and “so messed up it made her cry,” according to a report from Summit County Sheriff’s Office.
When a deputy arrived, the woman was seen in the motel’s parking lot “screaming incoherently” at motel residents, who were telling her to be quiet and leave. The deputy separated the woman from the people and brought her near a laundry room, according to the report.
The woman’s eyes were dilated, she spoke with slurred speech and “had trouble communicating, as she could not remember what had happened for more than a few seconds at a time,” according to the report.
The woman’s clothes were disheveled and not appropriate for the sub-freezing temperature outside.
A preliminary breath test revealed a reading of 0.251 breath alcohol concentration.
The woman had no recolletion of arguing with people and contested that she “had not consumed any alcohol nor had she ingested any type of drug” according to the report.
The woman, who refused to go home and was unable to contact anyone who could care for her, was issued a summons for disorderly conduct and placed into protective custody.
A man recently drove a Jeep up a stranger’s home driveway and through the yard before getting stuck in a snow embankment.
The 23-year-old was found standing in the driveway with a face covered with mud spatterings wearing dirty, wet clothes, according to a Sheriff deputy’s report.
The man was intoxicated and swaying in a circular motion while standing in one spot.
Asked what happened, the man replied: “Basically, I got drunk in Breckenridge and (screwed) up, I drove my car up here to find a bus, I got lost and tried to turn around, and got stuck.”
He declined to participate in roadside maneuvers because he was “too drunk,” according to the report.
The Jeep’s passenger said the two had been drinking alcohol at several bars in Breckenridge, and the driver got stuck after passing the home and trying to turn around.
A witness said she saw the driver “gunning the engine” and that it appeared he drove into the yard intentionally.
The deputy observed ruts in the home’s yard, but the owner couldn’t be immediately reached for an estimate of the damage, according to the report.
The driver had a preliminary breath test reading of 0.244 breath alcohol concentration. He later fell asleep during jail processing. The man was charged with drunken driving and careless driving.
