Thursday, Aug. 30

5:06 p.m.: A man at the Montezuma County Detention Center’s booking area was served two warrants and left in the custody of the jail.

9:27 p.m.: A deputy responded to a report of a fight at the water docks, 20 N. Park St., and found a man sleeping. A police officer arrived to investigate, and warned the deputy that the man has a history of spitting on officers. The man eventually got to his feet, then spit at the police officer, who placed him face down on the ground to keep him from spitting on anyone else. The man was still spitting as he was arrested, so a deputy placed a spit hood on his head, and officers placed him in a patrol car.
