Guests visit Eagle motel’s roof

Eagle Valley Enterprise
Eagle, CO Colorado

EAGLE, Colorado –Eagle Police were called to a local motel last week on a report of an intoxicated person on the roof.

The officer didn’t spot anyone on the roof initially and went inside where she met up with an Eagle County deputy. The deputy reported seeing someone run down the hallway, away from him.

Eventually both officers contacted an apparently intoxicated person inside a bathroom in one of the motel rooms. The man offered several stories about his whereabouts that night and said another man was sharing the room. Outside the room, there were visible footprints that did not match the man they were talking to.

Eventually the officers spoke with another motel guest, after rousing him from a deep, apparently alcohol-induced, sleep. The man said he and several other people had been on the motel roof earlier.

The officers called the Eagle Fire Department to get a ladder truck so they could check the roof for other people. Two men were issued warnings for their behavior and a third man was charged with criminal trespass and obstruction.
