Summit County: Employee tries to burn resort after termination

A Keystone employee decided to go out with a bang, or at least with a few extra bucks when he found out he was being fired from the resort late last month.

The employee sold at least two lift tickets to people in front of the ticket office, according to a report from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.

The employee told deputies he knew he was going to be terminated and wanted to get rid of the tickets, but said he gave the tickets away.

The two men who bought the tickets told deputies they paid $50 each and saw the employee selling tickets to other people as well.

Deputies didn’t get any money back from the employee.

A man who had “too much” to drink recently just missed a left turn and accidentally drove into a snowbank.

A sheriff’s office deputy was watching as the man “failed to make a left-hand turn from 2nd Street onto Granite Street,” and wound up in the snow, according to a sheriff’s office report.

Playing it cool, the man backed up out of the snow bank and tried to continue down Granite Street.

The deputy stopped him and noticed that his eyes were watery and he smelled like booze.

When asked how much he’d had to drink, the man said “too much.”

The deputy asked for license, registration and proof of insurance. After dropping the documents several times the man eventually handed over an expired insurance card and the registration for his trailer, not the car he was driving.

The driver took a roadside sobriety test, failed and was taken in to the Summit County Jail. He opted for a blood alcohol test and was booked on DUI, careless driving and failure to use safety belt charges.
