Woman involved in high-speed car chase arrested again in Breckenridge

SUMMIT COUNTY – A Grand Junction woman arrested on Memorial Day after allegedly leading police on a high speed chase that ended in Silverthorne was picked up a second time in Summit County earlier this week.Breckenridge Police arrested Tremaine Frigetto, 46, on Monday for violating her bond conditions by drinking alcohol at Beaver Run, according to Breckenridge spokesperson Crystal Dean.Dean said officers were called to Beaver Run on a report that Frigetto walked out on her tab. When they arrived, they discovered she was out of jail on bond conditions and wasn’t supposed to be drinking.Frigetto was first arrested on May 29 after a chase that reached speeds of up to 132 miles per hour on Interstate 70, according to a incident report from responding Colorado State Patrol Trooper Martin Plakorus.According to Plakorus’ report of the first incident, he and another trooper approached Frigetto’s vehicle around 2:30 a.m. because she was parked illegally in an emergency turnaround underneath I-70 east of Silverthorne. Also, the license plates on Frigetto’s Nissan belonged to a Subaru, the report said.When Plakorus asked Frigetto for her license and registration, she handed him the information, then slammed her car door and locked it, and rolled down her window. Plakorus asked her to open the door, but she accelerated and left the scene, starting a high-speed chase on I-70 and into Silverthorne. That’s where Frigetto collided with several signs and a median on Wildernest road, then lost control and ran over the curb and through a fence near the 7-Eleven parking lot, the report said. Frigetto regained control and headed toward a Silverthorne Police Department vehicle on a separate traffic stop, before crashing into the front end of Plakorus’ patrol car. Frigetto was arrested, and booked into jail under suspicion of 10 felony charges and eight misdemeanors, including DUI, first degree assault on a peace officer with deliberation, vehicular assault and reckless endangerment.Two police officers were injured in the incident, the report said.According to jail records, Frigetto was released on $100,000 bond on May 31 the first time, then released on $10,000 bond on Tuesday, the day after her second arrest.She’s due in Summit County Court on June 21.A call to Frigetto was not returned.Nicole Formosa can be reached at (970) 668-3998, ext. 13625, or at nformosa@summitdaily.com.
