GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado ” Police said they arrived at the Oasis Restaurant and bar to investigate a complaint about a man with cocaine just as another customer started to fight with a bouncer in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Police Chief Terry Wilson said an officer arrived and tried to stop a man who was trying to punch a bouncer in the head. The man continued to try to attack the bouncer and pull away from the officer and had to be wrestled to the ground, Wilson said.

Jesus Moreno Medina, 42, of Silt, was arrested on suspicion of harassment and resisting arrest around 1:15 a.m. Saturday.

The bar employees told police they’d asked another customer who had cocaine to leave. He was gone when police arrived and handled the fight, but the bar called back 20 minutes later after the man returned, Wilson said.

Police arrived again and were pointed to a truck the man was leaving in and made a traffic stop. Security personnel from the bar identified the man they had earlier retrieved a plastic bag of suspected cocaine from, Wilson said, and police arrested Miguel Everardo Coronado Moreno, 24, of Parachute, on suspicion of cocaine possession.
