Police investigate a domestic incident on wheels & a robber who wanted more

This week in Boulder County, a man allegedly tried to kill his girlfriend by driving their car into a traffic pole, a robber decided to add “sex offender” to his rap sheet, the city clerk gave a green light to the Boulder Chamber’s ballot measure opposition and a jury read their verdict in the Air Force cadet’s sexual assault trial.

Driver allegedly attempted to kill girlfriend in Oct. 12 car crash

If this headline sounds familiar, that’s probably because I posted a similar story in last week’s round-up. This time, a 51-year-old man was driving when he allegedly unbuckled his girlfriend’s seatbelt, then drove the car into a traffic pole on the corner of 28th Street and Valmont Road in Boulder. Witnesses at the scene reported hearing both the driver and the girlfriend say that he crashed the car because she owed him money. Didn’t someone recently write a song about someone having her money?

Robbery suspect goes full creeper, tries to assault woman after stealing her wallet

Getting robbed is bad enough, especially when your apartment is robbed while you’re sleeping in it. But to have the robber enter your bedroom, pull off your covers and say sexual innuendo is beyond terrifying. Other people in that apartment complex reported missing electronics and a wallet the next day, but they apparently weren’t the robber’s type. *shudder*

No crime, no punishment for Boulder Chamber

Boulder City Clerk Alisa Lewis dismissed Steve Pomerance’s election complaint against the Boulder Chamber today, stating that although contractors are not allowed to participate in a candidate’s campaign, there is no precedent for limiting their speech on ballot issues.

Pomerance filed the complaint after his wife received an email from the Boulder Chamber opposing ballot questions 300 and 301. He later discovered that the chamber offices were serving as a pick-up site for One Boulder-produced “No on 300 and 301” yard signs, and that the chamber’s public affairs director was doing work for One Boulder during work hours using her chamber email address.

Air Force cadet found guilty of sexual assault

Ryerson faces between 2 years and life in prison for sexually assaulting a fellow cadet while they partied in Boulder last November. The jury found Ryerson guilty of sexual assault on a victim incapable of appraising her condition, but acquitted him of charges of sexual assault on a physically helpless victim and second-degree kidnapping.
