EAGLE-VAIL ” A woman who was ticketed for calling her neighbor a “jackass” said she used the word to call her cats, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

A man, 64, said his neighbor, 55, had been calling him a jackass two or three times each day.

The woman also had shoveled snow in the man’s driveway and has left her trash cans in front of the man’s truck in the past.

The man bought a video camera and began filming the woman’s harassment.

Two videos showed the woman in her driveway yelling “jackass” as she was looking toward the man’s bedroom.

The woman said her neighbor was paranoid. The deputy asked whether the woman called him names. With a disgusted look on her face, the woman said, “no, never.”

The deputy mentioned the videos and the woman said she used “jackass” to call her cats from the front steps of her home.

Several other deputies had been to her home to deal with the neighbor’s problems before. The woman was ticketed for harassment.

EAGLE ” A man said he led police on a high-speed chase to blow off steam after a fight with his girlfriend, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

The man, 20, raced past a sheriff’s deputy on U.S. Highway 6 in Gypsum in his Acura Integra shortly after 12:30 a.m.

The deputy followed the man ” going 90 miles per hour in a 55 mile-per-hour zone ” to Eagle, where another officer was waiting.

The man turned right at the Sylvan Lake Road roundabout and went 65 miles per hour in a 25 mile-per-hour zone toward Eagle Ranch.

The man finally stopped on Brush Creek Road and the deputy parked next to his door so that the man couldn’t get out.

The man stopped because he was lost and feared getting hurt if he crashed, he said. He had been chased by police in the past, he said.

Some marijuana was found in the man’s pants pocket.

The man was arrested on suspicion of vehicular eluding, a felony; and reckless driving, marijuana possession of less than one ounce, both misdemeanors.

EDWARDS ” A man went into First Bank for five minutes and when he returned, $1,380 in possessions had been stolen from his car, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

The man parked in front of the bank, left his car doors unlocked and ran inside.

When he came back, his laptop computer, checks, $160 and birth certificate were gone.

A sheriff’s deputy planned to investigate by checking pawn shops and footage from the bank’s surveillance cameras.

BEAVER CREEK ” A girl who was caught stealing a belt from her employer said she had planned to pay for it, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

The girl, 18, was leaving work at One Track Mind when she set off the alarm at the front door. A manager asked to see her purse and she refused, saying she had “personal items” in it.

The girl’s mother, who had driven to the store to pick her up, looked through the purse and found nothing, the mother told the manager.

The girl called another manager two days later and said she put a belt in her purse and planned to pay for it later. But she panicked when the manager confronted her about it.

The woman brought the belt back and was ticketed for theft.
