EAGLE-VAIL ” A father was banned from Battle Mountain High School’s events after he sent a harshly worded e-mail to the school’s volleyball coach, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

The e-mail, from the father of one of the coach’s players, said that the coach’s job may be in jeopardy and that several fathers wanted to hit the coach after a volleyball game.

The coach said he was not concerned for his safety because he was a big guy and could take care of himself.

The father apologized to the coach, who was unsure whether he wanted to press charges.

The father was banned from all the high school’s activities. The coach was told to consider a restraining order for away games.

EAGLE ” A man who had been driving drunk also had wet his pants, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

A driver reportedly was weaving all over the road and drinking beer in his Buick sedan on Interstate 70. He was pulled over.

The man, who had a California driver’s license, had no proof of insurance or registration for the Buick.

The man slurred his words and the Buick smelled like alcohol. A sheriff’s deputy saw that the man’s crotch was wet and asked why. The man said he had urinated in his pants.

The man drank four beers as he was driving from Parachute, he said, and two six-packs of Budweiser were found on the floor.

The man was ticketed for driving under the influence of alcohol, open container in a motor vehicle and no proof of insurance.

EDWARDS ” A man who pushed a pregnant woman was punched in the face, bitten and hit with a metal rod, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

The man and his roommate got into an argument in their kitchen about the man drinking in the home.

The men started pushing each other. The roommate’s wife, who was seven months pregnant, tried to break it up and the man pushed the wife.

The roommate bit the man’s back, punched his face and grabbed a metal rod and hit his back. The man left.

The roommate was arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault and disorderly conduct.

The man said he never pushed or punched anyone. He was ticketed for harassment and disorderly conduct.

EAGLE ” Police arrested a man who told them his girlfriend was suicidal, was cutting herself and was writing on the bedroom wall, according to Eagle police.

The woman, who was not bleeding, opened the door when police arrived, and said that her boyfriend was drunk and wasting the cops’ time.

The woman said that when she got home, her drunken boyfriend was sitting at the table, arguing with her children. When she confronted him, he threw a plate of spaghetti sauce on her.

She then went in the bedroom and wrote “I love Wayne” (the boyfriend’s name) on the wall with spaghetti sauce.

The man was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence and harassment.

EAGLE ” A 22-year-old man who said he was “just trying to meet people” was arrested on suspicion of assault following a fight outside the Brush Creek Saloon, according to Eagle police.

The suspect had been attacked for no reason, he said. The bartender said the man had been pestering people all night.

The man had argued with a 47-year-old California man about using a pool table. The older man stepped outside to smoke. Then the younger man and his friend beat the older man, who ended up needing stitches above his eye.

The suspects were pointed out to police as they were walking down the street. The other suspect got away.

EDWARDS ” A man whose hired construction workers drove through his neighbor’s property was ticketed, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

A man’s neighbors were having their deck rebuilt and their workers drove through the man’s yard. There were tire tracks through the man’s property going from the street to where the deck was being built at the couple’s home.

The neighbor had asked his workers to bring their trailer across the man’s property so that it did not have to be parked in the neighbor’s driveway, he said.

A sheriff’s deputy said he could write tickets for the workers or for the neighbor and his wife.

The neighbor took responsibility and was ticketed for third-degree criminal trespass.

EDWARDS ” Threatening messages were written on a door to a home, neighbors told police, according to the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office.

“You can’t run,” the message said. “I know where you live and you have messed with the wrong person.”

The people who lived in the home were moving, the homeowner said.

The owner said she would contact the tenants to ask about the threats, she said.
