A teenager from Southern California fell approximately 30 feet onto a patio from a window at the Marriott Summit Watch on Sunday night, the Park City Police Department said.
The fall came after a dispute between him and his mother, according to the police. Phil Kirk, a police captain, said a physical confrontation occurred between the teenager, a 17-year-old, and his mother in a room at the hotel.
She escaped, ran to the lobby and the police were called, the police said in an online statement. The Police Department received the report at 11:33 p.m.
Kirk said the teenager locked the door to the room and barricaded himself inside by moving furniture in front of the door. The police spoke to him through the door in an attempt to convince him to let them inside.
The police were able to open the door of the third-floor room. A sergeant saw the teen moving toward an open window and attempted to talk him out of jumping from the window. The furniture in front of the door blocked the sergeant from quickly getting to the teen, Kirk said. The sergeant saw the teen hanging out of the window and then release his grip, according to Kirk.
The online statement indicated the teen was "not cooperative" and "would not be talked down."
A medical helicopter took the teenager to a hospital in Salt Lake City with unspecified injuries, Kirk said.
Kirk said the teen will be referred to juvenile court on counts including aggravated assault, kidnapping and interruption of a communications device.
