WINDSOR WOMAN ARRESTED FOR SUSPICION OF DUI ON A GOLF CART
At 10:46 p.m. Oct. 12, police were called to Water Valley Parkway and Pelican Lakes Point on a report that a Windsor woman was driving a golf cart on the roadway while under the influence of alcohol. Police were called by a Union Colony Protective Service security guard when he saw a woman driving a golf cart going the wrong direction on the roadway. The police report said the woman exited the cart and walked off into the bushes on the side of the road. The guard contacted the woman and noticed that she was slurring her words and having a hard time standing while talking to him. When police arrived, she was sitting in the golf cart and told police she was at a friend’s house. Police could smell a strong odor of alcohol on her breath. She had watery and glassy eyes, and when she stood up she lost her balance and fell forward. She was asked how much alcohol she had, and she said, “some.” She told police she wasn’t driving and that several people were diving the cart. The woman said “no” to a voluntary roadside test, and she was then advised that she was under arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol and failure to drive on the right side of the road. She was transported to the Windsor Police Department. “People may think because they’re in a golf cart that some of those rules don’t apply to them,” Windsor police Chief John Michaels said.
FRIENDLY ROOFER RAISES SUSPICION: At 1:44 p.m. Oct. 17, police were called to the 400 block of Main Street regarding a suspicious male in a white van behind a beauty academy business. The reporting party, a woman, said the man had been in the area for a couple of days and was bothering the academy students as they arrived and left the business. She said the man, who had a medium build, in his 50s and was Latino, would talk to each person as they walked out of the academy and would walk them to their cars. The man would also ask them if they were cold and other odd questions. Police located the man and another man spreading epoxy material on the roof of an adjacent business. All the building roofs are connected. He told police he was just being friendly and saying hi to the people at the businesses. Police explained to the man that it was out of the ordinary and bothering the females for him to walk with them to their cars. The man said he would tone down his conversational interactions with others. He told police that he worked for Majestic Roofing in Fort Collins.
MAN THROWS GREEN PAINT INTO STREET: At 10:48 a.m. Oct. 20, police were advised that a neighbor of the reporting party at the 1700 block of Green River Drive was throwing a large amount of green paint into the street. Neighbors had also seen the resident throwing paint into the street. The fire department was contacted and they put something on the paint to dry it up so cars could drive over it. Police attempted to contact the neighbor, but he wasn’t home. Police also noticed that there was green paint on the fence and grass around the yard. When police finally talked to the man, he apologized for the paint in the street. He told police that when he got finished painting, he washed out his sprayer into a bucket and thought he could throw the water into the street and it would wash away. He told police that he didn’t know that it would leave the big paint stain in the street, and didn’t know how to clean it. Police advised the man that he could contact Windsor Public Works and see if they had any suggestions. Police told him not to do the same thing in the future, and he understood. There was no criminal intent in the case, so he was not charged.
