Guest gets pass pulled for shoving liftie

KEYSTONE – A sheriff’s deputy cited a man for harassing a lift-line worker and has recommended the district attorney pursue assault charges.

Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the Keystone gondola after resort emergency services workers broke up an altercation between a guest and a lift-ticket scanner. The lift employee told the deputy a man became enraged after three failed attempts to scan his pass. The employee said the man shoved him to the ground. A witness corroborated the liftie’s story.

The man, Frederic Krehely, age and residence unidentified, told the deputy that ticket checkers would not let him pass and he did not push the man down.

Keystone revoked Krehely’s season pass. The deputy issued him a summons and released him.
