Monday, March 25, 2019

1:33 p.m. Steamboat Springs Police Department officers were called about a road rage argument between two men in the 1100 block of South Lincoln Avenue. Officers arrested one of the men on suspicion of menacing after he got a stick from the back of his truck and threatened the other man with it.

1:34 p.m. The owner of an Airbnb in the 700 block of Yampa Street was upset because a guest had left a stain on the couch. When the guest returned to clean the stain, the owner called officers to complain about it. Officers did not respond because the guest was not doing anything illegal by cleaning the couch.

2:10 p.m. The former employee of a recently closed business in the 10 block of Eighth Street called officers after trying to cash checks from the business that were rejected due to insufficient funds.
