Fight breaks out at bar, continues across Keystone

A man who started a fight at a bar near Keystone Resort last week continued it at a bus stop and later at an employee housing complex after he was asked to leave the bar.

The man reportedly pushed another guy at the bar, calling him a “douche bag,” according to a report from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office. When the guy’s friend approached and asked what was going on the man asked him if he knew the man he had pushed. The friend said he did. The man responded “Well, then, you’re a douche bag too,” and proceeded to try to choke the friend.

The instigator was soon asked to leave the bar, but wasn’t done picking fights.

Witnesses say he and his brother later turrned up at a busstop, where the instigator shoved someone. Both the instiator and his brother then attacked yet another guy who told them to get under control, knocking him out, the report said.

The brothers then caught the bus continued on to a Keystone employee housing building where witnesses say they again got into a fight with one of the guys from the bar.

A Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputy arrived to see the three of the men fighting in the stairwell of the building.

Several people had minor injuries as a result of the fights and one of the many victims decided to press charges.

The instigator was charged with third degree assault and his brother was cited for disorderly conduct for fighting in public.

A woman who appeared to be driving drunk almost hit a police cruiser in Breckenridge early Saturday morning before she took a joy ride on the sidewalk in front of two police officers.

The Breckenridge officers told a sheriff’s office deputy they watched as the woman swerved within a foot of their patrol car before jumping the curb and driving down the sidewalk. The officers stopped her after she almost hit another vehicle, according to a report from the sheriff’s office.

The officers told the woman they stopped her for driving on the sidewalk and nearly hitting their patrol car. She told said, with slurred speech, that she thought she had just barely clipped the curb, the report said.

The woman failed the roadside sobriety tests and refused a chemical test.

She was taken to the jail on a refusal.

Refusing a chemical test results in an automatic one-year driver’s license suspension.
