Police report no arrests on New Year’s

Staff report

New Year’s Eve revelers were boisterous but behaved Wednesday night, as the Aspen Police Department, the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office and the Snowmass Village Police Department reported no arrests.

Snowmass Police Chief Brian Olson said his agency chased a number of assault calls, though only one potentially could result in an arrest. He said the responding officer is investigating, and if he can establish probable cause for an arrest warrant, he’ll continue with the case.

“Again, nobody was arrested last night, so I don’t know if that’s telling or not,” Olson said.

Snowmass officials also dealt with lost-property calls. He said there are probably seven or eight items missing, between lost wallets, driver’s licenses, jackets and ski gear, which is typical for New Year’s Eve. Finally, Snowmass police responded to a fire alarm that was pulled twice at Base Camp around 2 a.m. No one was found responsible for what Olson described as a prank.

Officials from both the Aspen Police Department and the Sheriff’s Office described Wednesday as a quiet New Year’s Eve. The night also was without any major accidents, both agencies reported.

“Everybody behaved and had a good time,” said Sheriff’s Office Patrol Director Michael Buglione.
