Aspen cop blotter: Disturbance on the dance floor

ASPEN ” Aspen police officer Leon Murray responded to Belly Up Aspen at 12:32 a.m. Sunday, March 1, after he received a report of a disturbance at the nightclub.

When Murray arrived at the club he encountered two doormen standing with a man, later identified as Daniel Mehler. The doormen said that Mehler, 23, had been causing a disturbance on the dance floor and refused to leave the club.

At that time another man approached Murray and said that Mehler smacked him. Mehler was arrested and taken to the Pitkin County jail. He was booked for assault and battery, and trespassing.

ASPEN ” A woman was arrested at Club Chelsea after she apparently tried to use a fake state identification card to enter the venue.

Maria Constanza Pedro, 20, of Aspen, presented the card to a security guard at the club door. While the identification card was authentic, it did not belong to Pedro.

Aspen police officer Adam Loudon arrested Pedro, and she was booked at the Pitkin County jail for allegedly using false identification.

ASPEN ” Aspen police officer Tina Schairer was dispatched to City Market about an alleged shoplifter in custody.

When Schairer arrived at the grocery store she was directed to the customer service office, where an employee said that Daniel Spira, 26, of Aspen, had picked up a can of Red Bull and walked out without paying.

Spira was issued a summons for shoplifting.
