Felony menacing charge dismissed against Steamboat man

— Charges have been dropped against Jason T. Leuthold, a Steamboat man who was arrested April 7 on suspicion of felony menacing.

According to the District Attorney’s Office, the charge was dismissed because Leuthold could claim self-defense.

According to an arrest affidavit, Leuthold got into an altercation with Michael A. Nielsen. Leuthold was treated for his injuries at Yampa Valley Medical Center. Nielsen faces a third-degree assault charge.
