Information on the following cases was provided by Summit County Prosecuting Attorney Matthew Bates.
Adam Johnson, 25, of Draper, and Collin Reid Tuttle, 25, of Salt Lake City, were charged with various offenses relating to an assault that occurred at a bar in Park City on Oct. 26. Witnesses allege that Tuttle and Johnson assaulted the bar staff as the bar was closing. When Park City Police arrived, the two fled.
Brittany Sanslow, 22, of Salt Lake City, was charged with fleeing and obstruction of justice. Sanslow was with Adam Johnson and Collin Tuttle when the Park City Police attempted to stop and question them about an assault at Collie’s in Park City. Sanslow fled with Johnson and Tuttle and later provided false information to the police about Tuttle’s whereabouts.
Carlos Omar Monreal-Ramirez, 22, and Ivan Alejandro Monreal-Ramirez, 21, both of Kearns, were charged with giving false personal information to a police officer. Ivan was also charged with drug possession. On Oct. 29, Carlos and Ivan were in a car that was stopped on State Road 224 for a traffic violation. When the deputy asked them for identification, both men gave the deputy false names. After discovering their true identities, the deputy arrested them on outstanding warrants. While searching Ivan during the arrest, the deputy found cocaine in Ivan’s wallet.
Francis James Hanaway, 36, of Park City, was charged with criminal mischief, intoxication and disorderly conduct. On Oct. 28, Hanaway was drinking at a bar in Park City and became belligerent during an argument over whether the Army or the Marines was a better branch of the military. Bar staff escorted Hanaway from the bar. Hanaway then turned and struck the glass front door with his fist, shattering it.
Graham Carr Wilson, 19, of Park City, was charged with domestic violence assault. On Oct. 28, Park City Police officers were dispatched to Wilson’s home on a report of a domestic dispute. On arriving, a woman reported that Wilson had assaulted her. The assault charge against Wilson was enhanced from a class B misdemeanor to a class A misdemeanor because Wilson was convicted earlier this year of a domestic violence offense.
Jasin Leon Leavitt, 36, of Oakley, was charged with two counts of sexual battery. On Oct. 28, a woman in Kamas reported to sheriff’s deputies that Leavitt had pinned her against a counter in the restaurant and assaulted her.
Michael Frank Provost, 44, of San Jose, California, was charged with felony driving under the influence of alcohol. On May 17, 2012, a Summit County Sheriff’s deputy stopped Provost for a lane travel violation. During the stop, the deputy smelled an odor of alcohol coming from Provost’s breath. Provost admitted to drinking several beers. The deputy obtained a sample of Provost’s blood and sent it to the State Crime Lab for analysis. The Lab determined that Provost’s blood-alcohol level was .42, more than five times the legal limit. The County Attorney’s Office delayed filing charges against Provost until a pending misdemeanor DUI in another jurisdiction resolved with a conviction. That conviction was Provost’s second DUI in 10 years, making the instant charge a felony.
Peter James Bunker, 31, of Casper, Wyoming, was charged with criminal mischief, aggravated assault, driving under the influence, fleeing and driving on a suspended license. On Oct. 27, Bunker was spotted driving eastbound in the westbound lanes of Interstate 80 in Parley’s Canyon. A witness saw Bunker intentionally swerving at oncoming traffic. A Utah Highway Patrol trooper attempted to stop Bunker, but Bunker ignored the trooper’s lights and siren and continued fleeing east. Bunker eventually slammed his truck into the rear of a parked, unoccupied UHP cruiser, causing significant damage. When the troopers apprehended Bunker, they noticed that he had slurred speech, poor balance and a strong odor of alcohol. Bunker has been convicted on three previous occasions of driving under the influence.
Andrew Robert Moss, 33, of New Mexico, pleaded guilty to one count of attempted theft, a third-degree felony. Moss admitted that while employed as an auditor and general cashier in March 2012 for a local ski resort that he embezzled two cash deposits totaling $13,802. Moss will be sentenced on Jan. 6, 2014, at 11 a.m.
Robert John Lucking, 50, of Heber, pleaded guilty to theft and failing to pay over public money. The charges arose from Lucking’s employment as a sergeant and evidence custodian at the Park City Police Department and his service as the president of the Park City Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police. In the theft charge, between 2007 and 2012, Lucking embezzled more than $50,000 from the Park City Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police. Most of the money was excess donations from the Lodge’s Shop with a Cop program. In the charge of failing to pay over public money, Lucking failed to properly handle cash submitted to the Park City evidence room. Lucking served as the evidence custodian from March 2008 to March 2012. An audit of the evidence room conducted after Lucking retired from that position revealed several thousand dollars in missing cash.
