Fire leads to arson charges
The Delta Police Department said a 13-year-old boy was ticketed on suspicion of fourth-degree arson Monday night after authorities were called about a burning tree stump at Confluence Park.
During the course of the fire call, authorities questioned another juvenile boy about why he had chewing tobacco, and the boy explained he got it from his mother, Delta police spokeswoman Jamie Head said. Keidren McCarty, 33, was issued a summons on suspicion of providing tobacco products to a minor.
Man accused of obstruction
Christopher R. Elliot, 20, 585 25 1/2 Road, Unit 21, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of obstructing a peace officer, among other charges, after he allegedly pushed a television off a stand in his bedroom, and it hit a Grand Junction Police officer in the leg, according to an arrest affidavit.
Officers were trying to handcuff Elliot, who was wanted on outstanding warrants, after they were invited inside the residence, the affidavit said. Elliot was subdued with a Taser for allegedly failing to comply, the affidavit said.
