Scenes from a bad movie in Eagle

EAGLE, Colorado ” It’s just after dark and a white van is parked in front of a playground in Eagle, Colorado. Three people are inside.

Rarely does this scenario unfold into anything less than a scene ripped from a horror movie or end up on a reenactment on some crime show.

That scene in Eagle on Jan. 25 wasn’t as dramatic, but it still involved the law.

Deputies encountered a group of boozed-up teens, one of whom was having a problem keeping his hands out of his pockets. A simple pat down later and the one young man in the group had to end his night at the playground short. He was arrested for having an illegal butterfly knife in his pocket and spent the rest of the evening in jail.
