Vail, CO Colorado
Editor’s note: The following excerpts were taken from Eagle County law enforcement officers and police reports.
VAIL ” Two men were arrested after they led a Colorado State trooper on a car chase on Interstate 70, troopers said.
Kanen Lamb, 24, was speeding at more than 100 miles per hour past a trooper west on the interstate in a stolen Audi last week, troopers said. A trooper followed Lamb, who parked the car on the interstate just east of the Eagle interchange, Trooper Nick Kristie said.
Lamb and his passenger, Joseph Manzanarez, 25, ran in opposite directions, Kristie said.
Lamb ran across the interstate into Eagle, where he was arrested on Chambers Road about a half hour later, Kristie said.
Manzanarez was found barefoot and wearing one glove about an hour after he jumped over a fence north of the interstate and lost his flip flops and a glove, Kristie said.
Lamb and Manzanarez had been involved in burglary in Grand Junction where the car was stolen.
“We don’t know if they’re the ones that actually stole the car,” Kristie said.
Lamb was arrested on suspicion of reckless driving and driving while his license was suspended, both misdemeanors, and both men were arrested on suspicion of first-degree criminal trespass and theft by receiving, both felonies, Kristie said.
Man scuffled with deputy
VAIL ” A drunken man who wrestled a sheriff’s deputy on top of Vail Mountain on closing day was arrested, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.
The man, 35, refused to give sheriff’s deputies his identification after he was accused of fighting at the top of Chair 5. The man raised his voice and cursed, so deputies grabbed his arms and tried to handcuff him.
The man held his arm firm, refused to be handcuffed and cursed at deputies. A deputy kneed the man in the leg and pulled him on the ground, but the man ended up on top of the deputy.
The deputy used a “pressure point tactic” on the man and handcuffed him.
The man, who said he would “have” the deputies’ jobs, was taken in a snow cat to the bottom of the mountain. He was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
Man banned from Vail Resorts’ property
VAIL ” A man who lit off a couple firecrackers on Vail Mountain on closing day was banned from coming on Vail Resorts’ property, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.
The man, 28, had lit off a firecracker at the top of Chair 11. Another man said the 28-year-old man had thrown a firecracker into his chest.
The 28-year-old apologized, and was handcuffed and ticketed. His firecrackers also were taken away from him.
Snowboarder hits skier
VAIL ” A skier declined to press charges against a snowboarder who smashed into her on Vail Mountain, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.
The skier, 50, looked up and saw a snowboarder going “really fast” down a narrow run on closing day. The snowboarder ” who smelled like alcohol ” stopped to see if she was OK but did not give her his contact information.
She noticed she was bleeding and waited for ski patrol to help her.
The woman said she did not want to press charges against the snowboarder, but wanted a sheriff’s deputy to talk to him and ask him to remain at the scene of a collision next time.
The deputy could not find the snowboarder.
Man hit over beer
EDWARDS ” A 29-year-old man punched a 39-year-old man after the older man told him not to carry his beer outside a bar, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.
The younger man told the older man he was “not the law” April 11.
The older man tried to take the beer from the younger man and the younger man punched him in the face.
The younger man said the older man pushed him and grabbed his neck. The younger man was ticketed for assault and was told not to come back to the bar.
Man reports missing mannequin
GYPSUM ” A man’s mannequin, wearing a thong and wig, was stolen from an unlocked storage building, according to the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office.

Woman tied up with leashes
GYPSUM ” A 44-year-old woman went to the hospital after her husband and children tied her up with dog leashes, according the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office.
The drunken, bruised woman was taken to the hospital and a nurse called police when the woman said she had been tied up April 8.
The husband said his wife was angry when he came home. She threw a chair at the wall, and threatened to kill him and her and mother-in-law.
The husband and children tied her feet and hands together with two dog leashes, called the woman’s family and asked them to pick her up. The woman’s family took her to the hospital.
The woman’s son said his mother bit him when he tried to take her car keys so she couldn’t drink and drive.
