Cops: Roommate punched
Blaine Sears, 32, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of second-degree assault after he allegedly punched his roommate in the face, reportedly after being asked to do so by the victim, according to an arrest affidavit. The alleged victim told a Mesa County Sheriff’s Office deputy he and Sears were drinking and sitting on a couch at their home in the 500 block of West Good Hope Circle, while recalling they talked about rent owed.
The victim said he next remembered “waking up and blowing blood out of my nose.” The victim said he asked Sears what happened, while Sears told the victim he’d asked to be punched. Interviewed separately, Sears confirmed the victim made the request. “Blaine told me he did punch (victim) in the face only after (victim) continued to say to punch him in the face. Blaine said he wasn’t mad when he punched (victim),” the affidavit said. The victim suffered a nose fracture and had extensive swelling under both eyes, the affidavit said.
