Police blotter: a few too many
November 30, 2007
ASPEN ” It was a busy week for area police, as residents got into the holiday spirit. Or, at least the spirits, as several alcohol-related offenses were reported.
Aspen Police Sgt. Linda Consuegra was at Jour de Fete when she noticed a man outside who appeared to be under the influence of alcohol. She went outside and spoke with Ruben Juarez-Garcia, 51, and noticed a bottle of alcohol in his jacket pocket.
According to the report, his speech was slurred to the extent that Consuegra could not understand what he was saying. Consuegra arrested him for drinking in a public place.
Aspen officer Ian MacAyeal was on patrol when he spotted four men in an argument near the entrance to the Cantina. One of the men saw MacAyeal and began walking away.
When MacAyeal talked to the other men, they said that Nathan Morse, 26, allegedly had gone behind the bar of the Cantina and began “helping himself.”
MacAyeal followed Morse and told him to stop, then questioned him about what had happened. Morse allegedly refused to talk and tried to walk away. When MacAyeal tried to stop Morse, Morse allegedly pushed MacAyeal away.
