Fight ends in arrest

Sawyer Curtis, 22, was arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of disorderly conduct, violation of a protection order, obstructing a police officer, and having an active arrest warrant, according to the Grand Junction Police Department.

An officer saw Cody Weaver, 30, and Curtis fighting in the area of Fourth Street and Colorado Avenue about 12:40 a.m., according to a case report. Weaver was issued a summons on suspicion of disorderly conduct.

Curtis ran from an officer who told him to stop, according to the report, but was caught by two officers. A records check showed Curtis had an active arrest warrant and an order that restrained him from drinking alcohol. He was booked into the Mesa County Jail.
