Two brothers from Longmont were arrested Saturday after employees at the Glen Eden Resort in Clark reported one of them broke a window during a heated argument.

Christopher Wayne Kerr, 34, was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, driving carelessly and possessing a prohibited weapon. His brother, David Richard Kerr, 37, was charged with possessing a prohibited weapon.

The men were contacted late Saturday night by the Routt County Sheriff's Office after deputies received a call from Glen Eden Resort employees who accused the men of fighting, Undersheriff Dan Taylor said.

Taylor said the men had set up a hunting camp near U.S. Forest Service Road 409, south of Clark, but that they had been at the Glen Eden Resort drinking. Citing witness statements, Taylor said the two got into a heated argument and that Christopher Kerr punched and broke a 3-by-3-foot window.

Christopher Kerr agreed to pay for the window and charged the cost of replacing it to his credit card, Taylor said.

Even though employees said the situation seemed to be under control, deputies still responded to the call.

The deputies then decided to contact the men, who had left the resort.

Deputies reported finding the brothers sleeping in the cab of a silver Dodge pickup near their hunting site.

Deputies and the Colorado State Patrol trooper who woke the men reported that they were intoxicated.

Officers also reported finding several hunting knives, two rifles and two pistols in the truck. It is illegal to posses certain weapons while under the influence of alcohol.

The men were taken into custody and booked into the Routt County Jail. Both the men posted $750 bonds and were released Saturday.
