County Sheriff’s Report

A 55-year-old man was "rammed by a cow" east of Oakley Aug. 9 at 10:26 a.m.

He suffered "labored breathing" and a "near loss of consciousness" as a result of the blow, which caused severe abdominal and chest pain, a report from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office states.

In a separate case Aug. 9 a deputy drew his gun on a man who tried to evade officers near The Canyons at about 11:50 p.m., said Josh Wall, a spokesman for the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.

Three men under the age of 21 "ran into a couple of undercover officers doing alcohol enforcement," Wall said in a telephone interview.

"I don’t think that they were really drunk," Wall said about the two suspects who are facing charges.

But one of the men tried to evade officers by running from the scene, Wall claimed.

"[Deputies] basically chased him down and took him into custody," Wall explained, adding that investigators determined one of the three men had not been drinking. "The officer couldn’t see what he had so he started giving verbal instructions and they scuffled He ordered [the suspect] at gunpoint to get to the ground."
