Bystanders help Larimer County deputy detain naked suspect
LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. — Two bystanders helped a deputy subdue a naked and intoxicated man in a field north of Loveland on Thursday afternoon, the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office said.
The incident happened just before 5 p.m. when dispatch received a report of criminal trespassing in the 6200 block of North County Road 17. The caller said a vehicle was stuck in a field about 800 feet west of the road and a naked man was nearby.
The naked man was later identified as 18-year-old Keenan Hunt of Fort Collins, the sheriff’s office said in a news release.
After a deputy arrived, Hunt “became combative and physically fought the deputy,” the sheriff’s office said.
“During the struggle, Hunt attempted to remove the deputy’s firearm from his holster,” the sheriff’s office said.
After struggling for several minutes, two bystanders helped the deputy to subdue Hunt.
The deputy was taken to a hospital to be treated for minor injures and was released. Hunt was treated at the scene for minor injuries, then was booked into the Larimer County Jail.
Hunt is being held on allegations of second-degree assault, second-degree criminal trespass, criminal attempt to disarming a peace officer, criminal mischief, DUI and resisting arrest.
Bond has not been set.
