Summit County police blotter: Dropping names and resisting arrest

Editor’s note: The police blotter is written from incident reports provided by local police departments and the Summit County Sheriff’s Office. All individuals named are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

False identity

A woman who allegedly gave police a false identity was arrested July 30 on charges of criminal impersonation, resisting arrest.

Authorities picked the suspect up after she was spotted walking down East Keystone Road at approximately 7:30 p.m. A report from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office states she was showing signs of intoxication and initially gave officers a fake name. A witness gave deputies the woman’s real name, and they discovered she had an outstanding warrant.

Authorities then attempted to take the woman into custody, but she was allegedly uncooperative, according to the report. Once in the patrol vehicle on the way to the Summit County Jail, deputies reported she began verbally insulting and threatening them, allegedly saying one of the deputies did not deserve his job and that her father would have him killed.

The woman was booked on charges of failure to appear and pedestrian intoxicated on a roadway in addition to other offenses.

Accused vandal cited

A man accused of breaking a window in a home in the Keystone area in July 30 after the residents wouldn’t let him inside was cited for the alleged crime.

The residents said the man, whom they knew, showed up at their home and knocked on the door at 3 a.m. The visitor appeared to be drunk and asked to be let inside, saying he didn’t have anywhere else to go, according to a report from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.

When the resident told the man he wasn’t welcome inside the home, he allegedly appeared to walk away. A moment later, the resident reported hearing and seeing broken glass coming into the living room from one of the windows, and then seeing the man he’d just turned away running down the street, according to the report.

The suspect was already in custody at the Summit County Jail related to a different incident when authorities contacted them, the report states.

He allegedly admitted to being drunk the night before, saying he’d run into people from his hometown and spent time drinking at a bar and then at a local residence with them. The report states he said he’d gotten into a fight and been arrested, but did not mention the window incident.

Roadside brawl

Two drivers who got into a physical fight at the Silverthorne/Interstate 70 exit Aug. 3 both received citations, according to a report from the Silverthorne Police Department.

One of the drivers allegedly told authorities he’d been driving west on the highway through Clear Creek County when the other motorist pulled up behind him and tailgated him. He said he’d slowed down so the other driver could pass him, and the car did go around him, but then the driver slammed on the brakes nearly causing a collision, according to the report. The tailgating and aggressive driving continued into Summit County and both drivers made explicit handgestures to one another, the drivers reported. Both pulled off at the Silverthorne exit and got out of their cars. One driver allegedly swung at the other and missed, and then the second motorist responded by punching him in the face, according to the report.

One of the motorists got back in his car and fled the scene before authorities arrived, but Frisco police officers were able to track down the car. He gave a similar account of the incident, according to the report, and both received summons.
