Three arrested in bowling alley fracas
By MIKE WIGGINS
Three men were arrested at a Grand Junction bowling alley Saturday night after they allegedly assaulted three people in a brawl, sending two of them to the hospital, police said.
Jordan Jasper Bernal, 23, 1598 Q Road; Aaron Matthew Hanson, 21, address unknown; and Bret Adam Reed, 24, 696 Pinyon Drive, Fruita, were jailed on suspicion of second-degree assault, conspiracy to commit second-degree assault, third-degree assault, second-degree trespassing and harassment.
All three men appeared before a bond magistrate Sunday to be advised of the charges that could be filed against them. Hanson is being held on a $25,000 bond, while Reed and Bernal were released on $10,000 and $3,000 personal recognizance bonds, respectively.
Grand Junction police were called to GJ Scores, 2445 F 3/8 Road, around 11:30 p.m. after employees had asked Bernal, Hanson and Reed to leave because they were being disorderly, Cpl. Richard Roquemore said.
“They were doing some inappropriate bowling,” Roquemore said, adding that the men were being loud and tossing bowling balls down closed lanes.
The group left the bowling alley through a rear door but then returned, according to an arrest affidavit.
Hanson struck a bystander with a pool cue, leaving him with a laceration several inches long on the back of his head, and also punched a woman in the side of the head.
Reed tackled the manager of the bowling alley, causing him to fall and break his leg.
Bernal, meanwhile, fought with bowling alley employees before and after the men left.
Roquemore said the bowling alley manager and the bystander who was struck with the pool cue were taken to the hospital as a precaution.
