Edgewater Police Report: May 4, 2015

From Edgewater Police Chief John Hough:

On April 18, 2015, at about 3:10 AM, an officer on routine patrol noticed a vehicle weaving in the 2200 block of Sheridan Boulevard. When the officer contacted the driver, a 22-year-old male resident of Denver, he was arrested and issued a Jefferson County Court summons for failing to operate his vehicle in a single lane of traffic, failing to present evidence of insurance upon request and DUI.

On April 21, 2015, at about 6:25 PM, an officer on routine patrol observed a vehicle with a defective taillight occupied by two male suspects. The officer began to follow the vehicle in an attempt to stop it for the equipment violation and additional traffic violations. When the officer was able to determine the vehicle license plate, he learned that the vehicle was stolen in Wheat Ridge on April 18, 2015. The vehicle failed to stop for the officer and he began a short vehicle pursuit that was terminated due to the nature of the offense and the manner in which the vehicle was being driven. The officer recovered some physical evidence that was discarded from the stolen vehicle during the pursuit that may aid in the identification of the suspects in the vehicle.

Later on April 21, 2015, at about 9:10 PM, officers responded to a residence in the 6900 block of W. 25th Avenue regarding a noise complaint. When the officers contacted the 34- year-old female resident in the apartment unit, she refused to comply with their directions and became physically combative. The officers managed to take her into custody with minimal force, but she sustained a minor injury when she slammed her head into the prisoner cage in a patrol vehicle. The suspect was treated for her minor injury at a local hospital, then arrested and booked into the Jefferson County Jail for harassment and disorderly conduct.

On April 23, 2015, at about 6:00 AM, an officer responded to an apartment complex in the 6200 block of W. 26th Avenue regarding an unwanted party who was the ex- boyfriend of one of the residents in the apartment complex. The unwanted party was driving back and forth in front of the resident’s apartment on 26th Avenue at a high rate of speed. Officers located the vehicle and contacted the driver, a 36-year-old male resident of Edgewater, who was arrested for menacing, reckless endangerment, reckless driving, drinking an alcoholic beverage in a vehicle, driving his vehicle while his license was suspended and DUI and booked into Jefferson County Jail.

Later on April 23, 2015, at about 10:00 AM, an officer responded to an apartment complex in the 2700 block of Ingalls Street regarding a stolen vehicle report.

On May 1, 2015, at about 9:20 PM, an officer on routine patrol in the 5500 block of W. 20th Avenue observed a vehicle weaving in between traffic lanes.

When the officers attempted to disperse the group, they refused to cooperate and verbally challenged the officers. One individual, a 24-year-old male resident of Edgewater, was particularly aggressive toward the officers. As he was being taken into custody for disorderly conduct, additional officers had to respond to the scene to ensure the safety of the arresting officers and disperse the group. The male resident arrested was issued a summons to Edgewater Municipal Court for disorderly conduct.
