False Reporting Lawyer in Denver and Arapahoe County | Patriots Fan Pulls Fire Alarm at Hotel to Wake up Steelers Players

Posted by Terry O'Malley | Jan 23, 2017 | 0 Comments

Iam not sure if you watched the football game between the Patriots and the Steelers yesterday, but perhaps the results of the game were due to what happened at the hotel the Steelers stayed in the night before. According to the news report, the Steelers were woken up at 3 in the morning due to a false fire alarm at their team hotel. Apparently, after the alarm was pulled, the man accused of pulling it ran from the hotel and jumped into a waiting car to leave the scene of the incident. The false alarm was allegedly planned in advance by Patriots fans who wanted to disturb the Steelers. In Denver and Arapahoe County, the man would face charges of False Reporting, C.R.S. 18-8-111. If facing charges of False Reporting in Colorado, contact a False Reporting lawyer at the O'Malley Law Office today.
