Call backfires on neighbor

Jeffery Alan Rohracker, 27, 461 32 1/2 Road No. 2, was arrested Sunday night on suspicion of repeatedly insulting his neighbor and throwing gravel at the man.

According to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department, deputies responded to Rohracker’s residence on a report that Rohracker’s neighbor had thrown a bottle at him. Deputies contacted the neighbor, who told them Rohracker “often taunts (him) about his sex offender registration status,” according to a report of the incident. The neighbor told deputies that on Sunday evening, Rohracker screamed profanity at the man and threw rocks at his apartment balcony and door, deputies reported.

While deputies were speaking with the neighbor, according to the report, Rohracker yelled profane, sexually explicit comments at the neighbor. Deputies arrested Rohracker, who, according to the report “was less than cooperative during transport and for jail staff.”
