Editor’s note: The following excerpts were taken from Eagle County law enforcement officers and police reports.

GYPSUM ” A group of golfers flashed some other players and later crashed their cart at Cotton Ranch Golf Course, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

Someone complained to a 31-year-old employee Monday that two men and two women were playing slowly and that the women were flashing their breasts at other golfers near the 13th tee.

The employee told the group to speed up and to stop the flashing.

Later, the employee received a call that someone wrecked a golf cart. The caller heard tires screeching on the hill between holes seven and eight and went to see if everyone was OK. The caller found an overturned golf cart and beer bottles everywhere. No one was hurt, but the caller noticed the four golfers were drunk.

When the foursome finished the round, they “nonchalantly” left the cart in the parking lot, the employee told deputies. The cart was damaged, so the employee tried to stop them from leaving.

The employee asked them whether they wanted to work it out the easy way or the hard way.

The golfers said “the hard way” and quickly drove away, the employee said. The foursome used a signed gift certificate, which the employee showed to the deputy.

With that information, a sheriff’s deputy talked to one woman from the group.

The incident was still under investigation Thursday.

EDWARDS ” A young man ripped a jacket from under the arm of a 24-year-old woman hiking a Homestead neighborhood trail about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

The slender, 6-foot-tall man, described as being less than 21 years old wearing black running pants and shorts and a white T-shirt, ran ahead of her and turned around and smiled. The girl called out to the man ” whom she didn’t know ” and he ignored her and continued to run.

She ran after him, but got tired and scared and came to a Sheriff’s Office station in Edwards to file a report.

A sheriff’s deputy went back to look for the man but didn’t find him. The woman estimated the value of the brown North Face jacket at $100, along with $670 in other items in the jacket.

An Avon police officer noticed he had warned the 25-year-old woman a month before. Wal-Mart had not given her permission to solicit donations in the lot, he recalled. She also had not applied for a peddler’s license with the town.

About noon Sunday, he asked her whether she was asking for donations and why she had a binder and a fanny pack. She said she was only at Wal-Mart to buy something.

The officer returned an hour later and found the woman showing the contents of her binder to some men.

The woman was ticketed for trespassing and failure to get a peddler’s license from the town.

The girlfriend was trying to coax her boyfriend when the officer arrived. She allegedly failed a sobriety test and blew .102 in a blood alcohol breath test ” .08 is the legal limit for driving under the influence.

EAGLE ” A drunk 32-year-old woman was accused of violating her restraining order when she tried to track down her stolen car keys, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

A 34-year-old man removed the keys from the woman’s pocket while she was singing karaoke at the Brush Creek Saloon Sunday.

The man told her he would drive her home but took her to his house instead. He told her to come in and go to bed or he would call police and the couple began arguing outside his house.

The deputy found that the woman had a restraining order that required her to stay away from the man’s home and place of employment and to avoid drinking alcohol.

The woman was jailed for an outstanding arrest warrant and ticketed for violating a restraining order.
