Police Report: Alleged towing of snowboarder leads to citations

The following information is from Douglas County Sheriff’s Office reports:

— The driver of a green Cherokee was cited on suspicion of possessing paraphernalia and for not having his driver’s license after he hauled a snowboarder on a rope attached to his vehicle around the parking lot of the Round Hill Shopping Center.

The deputy reported that he smelled marijuana inside the vehicle. The driver allegedly had a large bong with burned marijuana residue inside, two pipes with burned residue, a wooden grinder with marijuana fragments, rolling papers and a prescription bottle with marijuana fragments.

The snowboarder was issued a citation for allegedly clinging to a vehicle while snowboarding.

— Two men were cited on suspicion of possessing marijuana and paraphernalia at 11:45 p.m. Jan. 12 at Harveys Resort Casino.

A sheriff’s deputy reported that he found two men smoking marijuana at the Harveys parking garage. They were detained by security. Both men smelled of marijuana and had bloodshot, droopy eyes. the deputy said. One man allegedly had a pipe with burnt residue in his pocket, and the other had a small cylinder in a fanny pack.

— A man reportedly asked for a last kiss with his ex-girlfriend while being taken into custody for allegedly violating a restraining order she had against him Jan. 13 near Lakeside Inn and Casino.

The woman had filed an El Dorado County restraining order against the man but had come to see him that day, according to a deputy’s report. They fought verbally. Both were under the influence of alcohol. The man was under probation in El Dorado County and was not supposed to be drinking alcohol.

The man was placed under arrest. After he was put into the vehicle and told he could not kiss his ex-girlfriend, he allegedly screamed expletives at the deputy and attacked him from inside the car.

The man was taken to the jail, where he attacked two deputies and finally had to be put into a restraint chair, the report said.

He also was booked on suspicion of assault on an officer, battery on an officer and resisting an officer with force.
