Up Against The Wall: Drunk guy washes dishes at restaurant
summit daily news
A particularly helpful drunk guy found himself in some trouble after he was caught washing dishes in the kitchen of a local restaurant. He was not an employee of the restaurant.
The Summit County Sheriff’s Office was called in on the report of a drunk person causing a “disturbance,” just before 5 p.m. Feb. 28, but were later informed the disturbance was running on foot away from the restaurant. The man proceeded to run into a bank where he locked himself in the bathroom.
Deputies “responded to the bathroom” and contacted the man who came out of the loo in an aggressive manner and “refused to stand on his own,” according to a sheriff’s office report.
Deputies asked the man what happened. He didn’t present any “useful” information on the day’s events but he did say – pretty truthfully – that he hadn’t done anything wrong.
Authorities later discovered the man had a protection order prohibiting him from drinking alcohol and he was charged with violating it.
He later blew a .200 in an alcohol breath test.
A man sleeping in his former ice cream truck got a rude awakening when another man climbed into the passengers side of the car at 1:30 a.m. March 6.
The man in the ex-ice cream truck jumped out and chased the intruder down before calling authorities, according to a report from the sheriff’s office.
The accused-intruder later told deputies he’d been walking around in the area and “knocked” on a few things. But the ex-ice cream truck man’s story and tracks in the snow led authorities to believe that he had actually been peeking into car windows looking for things to steal, when he picked the wrong ice cream truck.
The man who had been sleeping in the ice cream truck said he recognized the other man as someone who worked at a nearby gas station and was “1,000 percent” sure it was the same guy who broke into his truck, according to the report.
The alleged intruder was charged with first-degree trespass, a fifth-degree felony.
A man frustrated with the long line at a local store managed to get in at least five f-bombs before authorities showed up to shut him up.
The man was heard swearing in a shop where children could hear him. Copper Mountain Security was called in and asked the man to stop using foul language, according to a report from the sheriff’s office. He then began cursing like a sailor and the sheriff’s office was called in.
The Copper Mountain security officer asked the man to step outside, which he did. He then calmed down. He later told deputies he had been drinking prior to the incident and had gotten frustrated with the long line. He said he didn’t realize he was offending anyone and used the language in “the heat of the moment,” according to the report.
