Woman arrested in Aspen bar scuffle

Aspen Times Staff Report
Aspen CO, Colorado

ASPEN ” An Aspen woman was arrested Friday morning on suspicion of third-degree assault and related offenses after an earlier dustup with a man at a local watering hole, according to court documents.

Marisa Roongrueang, 25, was advised of the charges at a hearing Friday before Pitkin County Court Judge Erin Fernandez-Ely. Roongrueang was to be released from Pitkin County jail later in the day on a $1,000 personal recognizance bond.

Her next court date was set on Dec. 9 at 11 a.m.

Roongrueang’s arrest stemmed from a confrontation with an Aspen man on Dec. 4 at about 1:50 a.m. inside Eric’s Bar at 315 E. Hyman Ave., according to a report filed by Aspen police officer Kyle Murray.

She reportedly confronted the man, described as an ex-boyfriend, and tried to grab his shirt. In the process, Roongrueang allegedly scratched the man’s neck. Police officers attempted to later contact Roongrueang but she could not be reached.

About 24 hours later, at 1:35 a.m. on Friday, Roongrueang was arrested at Eric’s Bar, and taken to Pitkin County jail where she was booked on two counts of third-degree assault and one count of domestic violence, court documents show.

Aspen electeds low on high density in area neighborhoods

The city of Aspen’s land use code says that only single-family homes can be built on lots smaller than 6,000 square feet in certain neighborhoods. That might change if Aspen City Council allows a proposed change that allows multi-family buildings to be developed.
