Victim in a fight becomes a suspect in Eagle

Eagle Valley Enterprise Staff
Eagle, CO Colorado

EAGLE, Colorado –Eagle cops were recently called to the scene of a local business on a report of two men fighting.

When they arrived, officers learned one of the men had left the area on foot. While searching the area, police learned the man they were looking for had been escorted out of another local tavern.

According to the police report, when officers arrived at the second bar, the operators said the man had come inside and gone directly to the bathroom. Bar personnel followed him, asked him to leave and escorted him from the premises. However, after he left, another patron told the bar operators that the man had just kicked and broken an irrigation box located along Broadway.

Police eventually caught up with the man and surmised that he has actually been the victim in the initial assault report. However, by breaking the irrigation box, his status changed to offender. Additionally, officers learned the man had an active restraining order prohibiting him from consuming alcohol.

The town of Eagle was contacted to determine the cost of repairs.
