Maxwell Arthur Bomberg

— All charges against Maxwell Arthur Bomberg except for resisting arrest were dropped in district court this morning. Bomberg, 20, pleaded guilty to resisting arrest stemming from an April car stop where he reportedly knocked down an officer as he tried to run away.

He was reportedly handcuffed at the time. Bomberg, of Steamboat Springs, was sentenced to a year of probation and ordered to pay $823.40 in fines.

He was also sentenced to two years of probation in a separate case. In 2009, he pleaded guilty to trespassing in an automobile with intent to commit crime and careless driving. Bomberg got a deferred judgment in that case, but the deferment was revoked this morning.

From April 14th, 2010: Maxwell Arthur Bomberg, 20, was arrested Saturday and charged with nine counts, including driving under the influence of drugs, minor in possession of alcohol, possession of drugs, resisting arrest and second-degree assault on a police officer.

Officers Tom Munden and John McCartin were putting the handcuffed Bomberg into the police cruiser when he reportedly knocked Munden to the ground and began running, Sgt. Rich Brown said. McCartin reportedly was talking to the passenger in the car when this happened, near Dream Island Plaza and U.S. Highway 40, and Bomberg ran until he was caught near the pedestrian underpass of 13th Street near the Yampa River, where Munden caught up with him. Bom­berg was released Monday on a personal recognizance bond, and no working phone number for him could be found.

Hey Pilot Staff, "but the deferment was revoked this morning" - that was probably the most relevant part of the "deal" because presumably now that sentence is to be served. What is that sentence? Is he in jail right now serving that sentence?

That throw away final phrase of the article probably should have been the start of the article in that he was probably taken to jail due to revoked deferment of a prior case. And then mention that charges in this case were largely dropped.

Oh well.

scott~ i read it as he got two years probation for the revoked deferment (which means now that charge from 2009 will be on his record)...he was taken to jail for the 9 charges he was up against on april 14th, 2010...then since he was on 'deferment' at that time it was revoked at this court date....

i don't get how he got 8 charges dropped (especially DUID, MIP, possession of drugs, assaulting a police officer, etc.)...and already being on deferment (which means you best keep your nose clean for the allotted time)....HOW does one get a year of probation?!!!!....oh yeah, $. RIDICULOUS!!
