Colorado State University freshman Karl La Borde apologized to the CSU community Tuesday night, in an interview with CTV.

La Borde was pulled over Friday morning near the intersection of College Ave and Laurel on suspicion of speeding and DUI. La Borde was driving a CSU RamRide vehicle.  After the officer approached the vehicle, he requested to search the car for marijuana, as he smelt the scent of the drug.

According to La Borde, he had smoked “…a small amount of weed” while pulled over during a break.  A self-proclaimed “recreational marijuana smoker”, La Borde believed he had not smoked enough marijuana to be considered intoxicated.

In an interview with CTV, La Borde said — I now realize that driving under the influence of marijuana is the same as driving drunk.–

La Borde admitted that he was not in the appropriate state of mind to be operating a vehicle, and he said he believed he was putting others’ lives in danger.

–I will never drive while high on marijuana, and I will take the keys out of the hands of whoever tries.–

La Borde claimed that after the arrest, he went back to his dormitory and threw away all of his drugs, drug paraphernalia, and drug related items.

La Borde expressed that he was putting other people’s lives in danger, and that he was glad that he didn’t hit or kill anyone.

RamRide is a weekend program offered by the ASCSU office at CSU. The program offers safe rides home for those who may have had too much to drink. Karl La Borde did have a partner who was in the car with him.  The ‘navigator’ was not taken to jail.

Armed with assault rifles, Fort Collins police responded to a 9-1-1 call this afternoon on the corner of Taft Hill and Elizabeth. According to Sergeant Kinsman of the Fort Collins Police Department, the call regarded a physical fight between two adult males.

One party consisted of a man and woman, as well as their young child in a car. The other party consisted of an adult male who was also accompanied by a child who was walking by. The second party approached the first when he overheard a loud argument between the family in the car.

According to Sgt. Kinsman, “The incident involved one of the men approaching the other regarding their parenting.  We [The Fort Collins PD] responded to this as a ‘High Risk Vehicle,’ meaning there was the possibility of a weapon,” said Sgt. Kinsman.

Jennifer Anne Rose was just leaving work nearby when the incident began. She made the 9-1-1 call that would eventually bring the assault to a standstill.

“There was this taller guy with red hair yelling at this other man and beating him up… ” said Rose. “… they kept screaming ‘Call the cops.'”

Police officers responded within minutes of the call, guns drawn on one of the suspect’s vehicles.  In a 20-minute ordeal, the individuals inside the car were carefully escorted into separate police cruisers.

Police officers took the young child of the parents in a separate car. Sergeant Kinsman said the two men involved in the altercation were not of relation. Details concerning the arrest of the other male suspect are unavailable at this time.

Because both parties are suspects in the incident, neither is able to file charges. Such charges, if filed will be left to the police.  No other details could be released from officers at the time regarding the suspects’ identities.

A previous post of this article stated the incident occurred on the corner of Shields and Elizabeth.  The correct location was the corner of Taft Hill and Elizabeth streets.  CTV will continue to follow this story as it develops.
