Hayden resident accused of trying to run over man with car
Hayden man faces felonies
May 26, 2012
Steamboat Springs — A Hayden man faces two felony charges after an incident in Hayden on Wednesday where police say a 28-year-old man was partially run over and dragged by a car.
Isaac Q. Reedy, 27, was arrested by Hayden Police Department officers on suspicion of second-degree assault and menacing after the incident, which happened at about 5 p.m. at a business in the 100 block of North Sixth Street.
According to an arrest affidavit filed in Routt County Court, the incident started when the man who was run over asked Reedy about "some goofy stuff" he thought Reedy had posted on Facebook. Reedy didn't respond to the man, but he later had what looked like a police baton and began yelling, according to the affidavit.
Reedy then got in his car and drove toward the man, the affidavit states. The man told police he could not get out of the way in time but was able to grab onto the grill of the car to keep from getting run over.
"After being dragged a short distance, Reedy hit the brakes," the affidavit states. The man hit by the car had minor injuries that included scrapes consistent with having slid on asphalt.
When confronted by police, Reedy said "I just lost my temper," the affidavit states.
Reedy still is in custody at Routt County Jail and is being held on a $10,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.
