Man drilled in his scrotum

Aspen Times Staff Report

A roundabout construction worker sustained a punctured scrotum Friday morning, after a fellow worker allegedly assaulted him with a power drill, according to authorities.

Luis Fernando Magana-Manzo, 21, of Carbondale, was arrested for second-degree assault by authorities Friday afternoon, according to a report filed by Investigator Ron Ryan of the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office.

The victim, whose name the Times has chosen to withhold, was treated and released from Aspen Valley Hospital Friday.

Following Magana’s arrest, he consented to an interview to tell his side of the story, according to Ryan’s report. Magana told Ryan that he and the victim had worked together for several months, during which time the victim had continually insulted Magana. Last Friday the insults continued, even after Magana asked him to stop, Ryan’s report said.

“Magana become angry and while `playing’ with the drill he was using, struck [the victim] in the groin,” Ryan’s report said. “Magana stated he did not intentionally harm [the victim], and the incident was accidental.”

Magana’s employer, Gould Construction, fired him following the incident, Ryan’s report said.

Magana is being held in the Pitkin County Jail on a $10,000 bond.
