SUMMIT COUNTY – An intoxicated man was arrested and charged with trespassing Friday evening after he was found in the Summit County Rescue Group barn near the County Commons in Frisco.

The man told a deputy he passed through the barn’s heavy door and combination lock entry system by using the “‘buttons’ to get in by pushing ‘stuff’ until he got inside,” according to a Summit County Sheriff’s Office report.

When the deputy first responded to the call, the man had told him he’d been drinking at a bar and his wife wouldn’t come to get him.

“So he was waiting for a bus, but got tired of waiting in the cold so he ‘messed around’ with the door until it opened. He went inside and hung for a while and then the cops came,” according to the SCSO report of the man’s statement.

There was no evidence of theft from the building.

The reporting party told the deputy he saw the man stumbling near the barn and was concerned for his well-being. He told the intoxicated man to have a seat until he could find a bus.

The reporting party said the man instead stood at the barn door pressing buttons and that he then saw the man “open the door, then enter the building and turn on the light inside of the barn,” according to the report.

The man exited the building and shut the door as deputies arrived. Deputies found him at the barn’s entryway.

“While en route to Summit County Jail (the man) became belligerent and began (to threaten) Summit County deputies with physical violence,” according to the report.

He was put in a padded cell and “could not be initially processed due to his combative nature,” according to the report.

The man was charged with second-degree trespass for defeating the barn’s combination locking system and remaining inside the enclosed portion of the building unlawfully.
