August 14, 2008
ASPEN ” Nathaniel Hope, 19, of Aspen, was sitting on a couch drinking a beer in the cigar section of Eric’s Bar when police asked him what he was doing.
Hope said he was just having a beer and then going home, according to the police report.
But officers, who know Hope and know that he was under age, arrested him for minor in possession and took him to the Pitkin County jail.
Despite his hand marked with a black X at Belly Up Aspen to indicate he was under age, Benjamin Isaac November, 20, got ahold of alcohol, according to police.
November was caught holding a glass police said was filled with alcohol, and November’s speech was slurred and his eyes were glassy, according to the police report.
Police issued November with a minor in possession summons.
