SNOWMASS VILLAGE, Colo. (AP) - A town official in Snowmass Village may face criminal charges for damage he allegedly caused to the Pitkin County Jail, where he was held last week on suspicion of driving drunk.

Town Councilman Chris Jacobson allegedly peed on the floor, damaged lights in the isolation cell where he was being held and punched the wall several times. That’s according to a police report filed by Aspen officer Ritchie Zah.

The Aspen Times reports ( ) that Jacobson is also accused of wrenching a restraining chair out of the ground and yelling obscenities at officers.

Sheriff Joe DiSalvo told the newspaper that he was waiting on a damage assessment.

Jacobson declined to comment on the possible criminal mischief charge or the June 26 DUI charge.
