TELLURIDE MARSHAL’S DEPARTMENT
DOMESTIC: A woman was arrested on domestic violence charges.
TALKED HIMSELF INTO IT: An inebriated man was denied entrance into a local establishment, which made him hostile toward the doorman. A patrolling police officer contacted the man, whose aggression escalated. The man’s friends tried to separate him from further trouble but were unsuccessful. The man was taken into custody and placed in the back of a patrol car. Another officer arrived on scene and the man was told he would be released into the custody of his friends. However, when asked for identification, he became irate and combative again, so the offer to go free was rescinded and he was taken to the pokey.

The report noted how polite the man was in spite of the circumstances.
