Unlawful urinator taken away in Avon

Editor’s note: The following excerpts were taken from Avon and Vail law enforcement officers and police reports.

AVON, Colorado “-The courteous gentleman who peed all over the bathroom walls in Bob’s Place in Avon has perhaps made his last appearance inside the bar and restaurant.

An employee became fed up seeing his mug over and over again after he had been banned from the locale for urinating on the bathroom walls. The employee called police Nov. 25, who found the man playing pool. The game ended quickly because he was handcuffed and taken to the police station.

But, on the way there, police learned he had an active warrant in Avon. Still, he was summonsed and released for trespassing.

There’ve been no signs of the man “-on the bathroom walls of Bob’s Place or anywhere else “-since the arrest.

AVON ” It’s getting tougher to be a homeless teenager in Avon these days.

A group of three homeless teens, in an attempt to simply steal some stuff from a man’s car to hawk it for food, were hauled in by the police on Nov. 30, thereby illustrating the plight of the young vagabond.

The police report said that one of the teens actually made it into the man’s car that night, which was parked at the Westin Hotel garage, but the man caught him in the act and called police. Though nothing was stolen from his car, the man pursued charges against the trio.

The one who made it into the car was taken to Eagle County Detention Facility for booking, while the other two were released back at the scene because they didn’t know their parents’ phone numbers or addresses.

AVON ” It’s usually the people with something they don’t want police to find out who avoid the police. But in one 54-year-old man’s case on Dec. 9, he was practically begging for attention despite his expired registration and license plate.

He did it while police were blocking off one lane of traffic on Interstate 70 to assist a tow truck in pulling a car out of the median. The guy, who was driving a green pickup truck, drove around one police car blocking traffic, then went into the blocked lane and headed down the interstate.

Police caught up with him quickly, though. They ran his license and registration, the latter having expired in June. His license plates expired in 2006.

Police charged him for those offenses, then, ironically enough, called a tow truck to remove his pickup from the highway.

AVON ” If there’s one thing a quarreling couple could agree on Dec. 10, it was “stuff.”

Police responded to The Seasons hotel around 1 a.m. that day for a report of domestic violence. They arrived and saw a woman screaming at a red Saturn, “Get out of the car!” according to the police report. Like a good, obedient partner, he got out of the car. The couple then answered questions from police.

They asked what the two were fighting about. The man said, “stuff.” The woman said, “stuff.”

Finally, after a few minutes of monosyllabic discourse, the woman cracked. She admitted she had pushed her boyfriend against the car door and scratched his face. She also admitted, “I shouldn’t have done that.”

She shouldn’t have not just because she left a nice mark on her boyfriend’s face, but because police arrested her and charged her with third-degree assault and other “stuff.”

VAIL ” A manager at a Vail restaurant found out the hard way that yes, police actually do pay attention to silly little noise ordinances, even in the middle of the day.

One police officer paid so much attention on Dec. 5 that he whipped out a noise monitoring device. He found that the speakers of the restaurant, which were blasting the raucous tunes of a guy and his acoustic guitar, registered at 85 decibels. The maximum decibel level allowed in Vail is 65 decibels between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m., according to the police report.

As the officer got closer to the property line of the restaurant, the meter was registering in the mid-90s, far beyond the legal limit for noise. He wrote up a quick summons for violating the noise ordinance and handed it to the restaurant’s manager. The manager complained that he should’ve been issued a warning since he was fairly new.

A clearance check on the manager showed why he said that. He had an active warrant in Clear Creek County.

The officer took him to jail and immediately released him on a cash bond.
