Man arrested after altercation with Steamboat Ski Area parking attendant

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — A Steamboat Springs man faces three misdemeanor charges after an altercation with a parking attendant at the Meadows parking lot.

At about noon Sunday, Steamboat police responded to a report of an assault at the parking lot, where the Steamboat Ski Area offers free parking.

Police learned a parking attendant was helping 21-year-old Nicholas Marosvari park his white pickup.

The attendant asked Marosvari to move the vehicle after it was parked improperly, according to an arrest affidavit.

Marosvari reportedly responded by saying, "(explitive) that. I'm parking here," according to the affidavit.

The attendant told the police that words were exchanged, and Marosvari "became enraged" and swung at him, which knocked the attendant's sunglasses off his head, the affidavit states. Marosvari then grabbed the attendant's radio, threw it on the ground and stomped on it.

Marosvari was taken to jail and booked on suspicion of harassment, criminal mischief and criminal attempt.
