to sue Sheriff’s Office
A 42-year-old woman threatened to sue deputies with the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office after an incident early Friday morning in the 200 block of Thistle Street, according to a report from the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies were dispatched to the area after a report of an assault involving a 49-year-old man and a 42-year-old woman, but no charges were filed because deputies weren’t told what happened, the report said.
The woman, who claimed to be “a Confederate” and “not a United States citizen,” refused to cooperate even after she was told she was not under arrest.
A deputy handcuffed her when she walked off after being told she was “simply being detained” for questioning. The woman said her rights were violated and she was “going to sue” the Sheriff’s Office, the report said.
According to the Grand Junction Police Department:
■ People assaulted and attempted to rob other people early Friday in the 200 block of North Avenue.
