'Drunken rage' yields charges

Man, 22, allegedly assaults 63-year-old


— A 22-year-old man has been charged with three felonies and three misdemeanors stemming from an incident where the man allegedly assaulted a 63-year-old man and heaved a chair through a restaurant window.

Richard Kelvin Lillingstone-Hall was charged Monday by Deputy District Attorney Charles Feldmann with second-degree assault causing serious bodily injury, a class four felony.

Lillingstone-Hall faces the charge for allegedly breaking the left cheekbone of Irvin Fisher in a drunken rage that occurred the night of April 11.

Lillingstone-Hall has also been charged with two counts of felony criminal mischief, two counts of misdemeanor criminal mischief and one count of misdemeanor harassment.

On Tuesday morning, Lillingstone-Hall made an initial court appearance. His case was continued to 1:30 p.m. this afternoon. The court proceeding was continued so he could submit an application to the Public Defender's Office in Steamboat Springs.

According to a court file, Lillingstone-Hall was attending a Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp. function at the Steamboat Grand when he tossed a chair through a window at the hotel's restaurant.

Lillingstone-Hall then went outside and allegedly started to "throw himself" at vehicles traveling on Mount Werner Circle, the file shows.

Lillingstone-Hall allegedly assaulted Fisher after he jumped on the man's hood to his 1996 Dodge van. When Fisher stopped the vehicle, he got out to find out why his co-worker would jump on his van. Both men worked for the ski school.

After being hit in the face, Fisher got back into his van and allegedly dragged Lillingstone-Hall for about 20 feet. The young man was hanging on to the driver's side door.

Lillingstone-Hall allegedly cracked the van's windshield when he punched it and scratched the hood.

Lillingstone-Hall then allegedly tried to stop a second vehicle, being driven by Aime Peterson, 24.

He allegedly jumped on the hood of her car and was trying to break a windshield wiper, court records show.

Peterson stopped her vehicle, and a 21-year-old man got out to confront Lillingstone-Hall. The suspect allegedly grabbed the man's glasses and threw them to the ground, court records show.

Lillingstone-Hall allegedly ran from the scene toward Ski Time Square Drive but was arrested the next morning morning when he showed up for work.

Currently, Lillingstone-Hall is free on bail. He posted a $20,000 bond April 12.
