Former Aspen cop’s arraignment put off
December 11, 2008
GLENWOOD SPRINGS ” An arraignment was continued Thursday for former Aspen police officer Jim Crowley, who was arrested earlier this year on alleged alcohol-related offenses.
His arraignment was rescheduled, apparently at the request of his Glenwood Springs-based attorney, Greg Greer, to 1:30 p.m., Jan. 15, in Garfield County Court. No reason was given for the change of date.
Neither Crowley, 43, nor Greer appeared in court Thursday.
Crowley was arrested Aug. 28 for allegedly driving a vehicle while his ability was impaired and possession of a weapon while under the influence of alcohol. The arrest happened after another officer said he detected alcohol on Crowley’s breath at the police station.
Police Chief Richard Pryor fired Crowley one day after the alleged infractions.
