Police: Mother-son outing ends in crash, $10K bond

A man who was arrested for stealing a car after attending an event in February at Two Rivers Convention Center, and later crashing the vehicle while drunk in Summit County later that night, was advised by a Mesa County judge Wednesday.

Michael McEvoy, 43, was attending an Ultimate Fighting Championship event with his mother, according to an arrest affidavit, when McEvoy allegedly swiped the keys to the car from his mother’s handbag, which was “cage side” unattended. He was later arrested in Summit County after crashing the car, police said.

Mesa County District Attorney Dan Rubinstein said in court that McEvoy has four felony convictions, and current cases spanning four separate jurisdictions. He was issued a $10,000 cash-only bond, on a possible charge of second-degree aggravated motor vehicle theft.
