Assault reported in Meadows parking lot
A Denver man was arrested on suspicion of third-degree assault after reportedly getting into a fight with a man during the Steamboat Springs Grand Prix on Saturday.
At about 3 p.m., as the racecars were driving, members of two pit crews started to argue, Steamboat Springs Police Officer Mike Smith said. Trent Blau, 41, pushed Doug Welch, also from out of town, who then tripped and hit his head.
Blau was arrested later that afternoon. Welch was taken to the hospital for observation and treatment and was released, Smith said.
