Felony charge for man accused of laptop smash

A 20-year-old Snowmass Village man is facing a allegedly felony charge after police arrested him for destroying his ex-girlfriend’s brand-new laptop computer, according to court documents.

Grayeson Hawkins-Fishman was charged with felony criminal mischief related to domestic violence. A District Court judge on Friday allowed him out of jail on a $2,500 personal-recognizance bond.

Snowmass Village police were called to the Club Commons building at 11:30 a.m. Friday after a 16-year-old boy reported hearing screaming voices coming from one of the apartments, according to a police report filed in District Court.

A woman in the apartment later told police she and Hawkins-Fishman had broken up three days before and that he showed up unannounced that morning at 11 to get his personal items, the report states. The former couple argued and Hawkins-Fishman allegedly spit in the woman’s face before picking up her brand-new $1,500 laptop and slamming it to the floor.

“It caused the laptop to bend, break and shatter into several pieces,” the report states.

Hawkins-Fishman left the apartment afterward, and declined to return when a Snowmass Village police officer called him “because law enforcement would only believe the woman’s side of the story and he would end up going to jail,” according to the police report.

He was later arrested at his mother’s house in Silt, and told officers the laptop fell to the ground when his ex-girlfriend grabbed it out of his hand.
