Man accused of fighting with police at Glenwood eatery

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado ” Andrew Fedorowski didn’t want to leave the bar.

Instead, he allegedly argued with employees at Chili’s and fought with Glenwood Springs police when they tried to remove him around 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Fedorowski, 52, of Glenwood Springs, was cut off from being served drinks at the bar but was less than enthusiastic about that and sipped another person’s beer, employees told police.

Police Chief Terry Wilson said that caused a confrontation and almost a physical fight. Fedorowski also followed a manager into the kitchen yelling and screaming, Wilson said.

Police arrived and started to arrest Fedorowski. He spun away from an officer while halfway handcuffed to try to go after another person, Wilson said, and an officer tried to hold onto him, resulting in Fedorowski bumping his head into a door.

Wilson said Fedorowski pretended to be unconscious and then kicked police in the legs.

“When officers rolled him onto his back he started screaming and yelling again so he wasn’t too unconscious,” Wilson said. “That’s when he started kicking them in the legs.”

Fedorowski was eventually arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault on a police officer, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and criminal trespass. He allegedly continued to yell and struggle with officers at the jail.
