BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. – A white man has been charged with a bias-motivated crime after allegedly dragging a black woman out of a Summit County bar by her hair.

The Summit County district attorney filed assault and bias-motivated crime charges Wednesday against 37-year-old Dustin Meadows. Prosecutors say Meadows used a racial epithet against the woman as well as other obscenities during an argument at a bar in Summit Cove.

According to the Summit County sheriff’s office, the argument began after Meadows allegedly spilled his beer on the woman while he was dancing. According to the report, the woman turned to him and said “What, no apology?”

The sheriff’s office says the woman was missing hair on the right side of her head.

Meadows is free on $2,500 bail.
