The man told the deputy that he was coming from a nearby bar and was just taking his 26-year-old female passenger home. As the deputy was looking over his documents, the man told the deputy that the car belonged to his girlfriend, but indicated that his female passenger was not his girlfriend. He told the deputy that he and his girlfriend were moving in together the next morning and how this situation was very awkward.

The man agreed to perform some roadside maneuvers and didn’t have much success. He stated that he had consumed a few drinks, but that he was completely coherent. After further investigation, the man was summonsed.

Unhappy camper

A 56-year-old man was acting strange at an Edwards restaurant and was asked to leave. When he didn’t, the cops were called.

As a deputy was on his way, the man went outside, got in his camper, and began to drive away. The deputy followed him onto I-70, and noticed that camper was traveling at 35 miles per hour in a 75 mph zone. The deputy pulled over the man and when contacted he said, “I guess I was going a little too slow.”

As the man handed the deputy his paperwork, he said, “I’m probably gonna get arrested because my license is suspended.” When the deputy ran the man’s information, he asked what had happened at the restaurant. The man said that he had sat down, and that a waiter had brought him a beer. After taking a few sips of the beer, a waiter asked if he was hungry and he replied that he was. The man said the restaurant staff then brought him some noodles with cheese and vegetables and that he thought it was weird that they brought him food without his order. He said that he then used the men’s restroom and noticed a discarded feminine hygiene article in one of the stalls. He found that very disgusting and decided to tell the waiter. He said that after telling the waiter, he was asked to leave the restaurant so he did.

The man told the deputy that he was on his way to Glenwood Springs to take care of his license. Dispatch advised the deputy that the man’s license was cancelled/denied. The camper remained parked and the man was summonsed.
