Man arrested for alleged sexual contact in Aspen bar
A man was arrested by Aspen police Saturday night for unlawful sexual contact and third degree assault, both misdemeanors, for an alleged incident that occurred at Belly Up.
Todd Santos, 45, is accused of making inappropriate contact with a 31-year-old woman without her permission, according to Aspen police officer Kirk Wheatley. The alleged victim shoved the man away from her after the contact and Santos allegedly reacted with physical assault.
Belly Up personnel subdued the man and held him until officers arrived, Wheatley said. Several witnesses volunteered information to investigating officers.
Santos provided a Vail address. He bonded out of jail Sunday morning.
