Pair arrested after bar scuffle with Glenwood Springs police

GLENWOOD SPRINGS – Two locals landed in jail on felony police assault charges early Saturday morning following a fight at a downtown bar about an hour before closing, according to Glenwood Springs Police.

Officers were called to 919 Grand Ave. around 1 a.m. Saturday on a report that two patrons had refused to leave when asked, resulting in a physical altercation, Glenwood Springs Police Lt. Bill Kimminau said.

“They were intoxicated and were told to leave, and wouldn’t,” he said. “Officers went to arrest them on trespassing charges, and they resisted and fought back.”

One of the police officers received minor injuries in the scuffle, which resulted in the aggravated felony charge, Kimminau said.

Thomas Lee Ice, 22, and Britny Alexis Sanchez, 21, both of Glenwood Springs, were arrested for second degree assault on a police officer, a felony.

Both were additionally charged with misdemeanor assault, resisting arrest and criminal trespass, a petty offense. Ice was also charged with obstructing a peace officer and criminal tampering. They were lodged in the Garfield County Jail.
