A Grand Junction resident reported a man, later identified as Sisneros, was threatening to kill her and trying to stab a postal carrier about 5:20 p.m. on Monday, according to an arrest affidavit.

When officers arrived, the carrier had Sisneros in a rear chokehold.

Sisneros resisted arrest and was eventually bitten by a canine officer before being detained, the arrest affidavit said.

He was allegedly asleep behind the wheel when officers approached the vehicle and the passenger side of the truck appeared to have sustained substantial damage, with pieces of fresh tree bark sticking on the doors and in the door handle.

Video evidence showed Ponce driving around Colorado Mesa University campus and hitting a tree, the affidavit said.
