At 4:43 a.m. at 6th Street and Yampa Avenue, Colorado State Patrol dispatch received a report of a female and male fighting. Upon arriving, Corp. Bryan Gonzales and officer John Meyers confirmed that the two had been fighting and are brother and sister. Gonzales contacted the female who he found face down in a parking lot.

She said her brother, identified as Nathan Smith, had thrown her to the ground and strangled her. She thought she might have passed out for a few seconds. She later told Gonzales she was screaming and couldn’t breathe; that Smith had a crazy look, making her think her life might be in danger. Gonzales called an ambulance and covered her with a blanket, as rain and snow began to fall.

Both Smith and his sister were transported to the hospital, where Gonzales took a few photographs of noticeable injuries to the female. She said she wanted to press charges against Smith.
