I was involved in a minor incident at the Blackhawk Colorado Isle of Capri Casino 10/02/2013 at 2056 pm and was called at my home at 5:00 am by an officer Sayers (badge 413) of the Blackhawk Police department and told that I had to come from Loveland to the department office in Blackhawk at 9:00 to 9:30 pm 10/03/2013 to discuss the incident. I complied with his demand, no legal representation went with me. The Casino had video camera of the incident. I left my poker machine with I thought around $10.00 in credits and placed a reserve sign over the operating keys and asked the person next to me to watch the machine he agreed as I had watched his earlier for him. When I returned, I found the credits on my machine were "0" and different display from when I left. I told the bartender I needed to talk to security as someone had stolen my credits and he said I need to leave. I got off the stool and in a moment of anger placed my hands on the shoulder of the guy next to me. (I did not push, shove or hit anyone and was confrounted by a casino guy and asked to leave which did.
The police officer issued me a Uniform Summons and complaint
or penalty assessment BHPD # XXXXX to appear in Black Hawk Municipal Court
