Neish case sent to District Court

Christine Metz

The case of a 59-year-old Steamboat Springs man who was arrested after allegedly ramming his vehicle into his brother-in-law’s pickup has been bound over to District Court.

William Edward Neish appeared Wednesday in Routt County Court on charges of criminal mischief, menacing, reckless endangerment, third-degree criminal trespassing, reckless driving, child abuse and harassment.

Routt County Judge James Garrecht sent the case to District Court. The case will be heard again Oct. 22. Garrecht also added two more names to the list of people with restraining orders against Neish.

The charges stem from an Aug. 2 incident. Neish and his brother-in-law arrived at Neish’s parents house on Routt County Road 18, and a verbal argument allegedly ensued when Neish asked his brother-in-law to leave, according to the Routt County Sheriff’s Office.

The parties got into their vehicles, and Neish ran his car into his brother-in-law’s truck, according to the sheriff’s office. Several children were inside the brother-in-law’s truck, but no one was hurt, according to the sheriff’s office.
