Underage drinking enforced at Avon fireworks

Avon, CO Colorado

AVON – A 23-year-old man was taken to the Eagle County Jail Friday night after he gave alcohol to a 15-year-old girl at the Nottingham Park Fourth of July celebration in Avon, Colorado, police say.

The man, who resisted arrest, bought beer for the girl and her friends at the park when an Avon police officer saw it happen. Police officers had to force the man to the ground when they tried to arrest him.

They ended up charging the man with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, which is a felony, and resisting arrest and violation of a protection order, both misdemeanors.
