Detectives and uniformed police attempted to contact Seth Brigham last night at 8:00 pm to investigate him on criminal charges. In a letter to Brigham today Police Chief Mark Beckner told Seth:
“You are the subject member in the investigation because it is your behavior that created probable cause to believe you violated several laws, including city ordinance 5-5-1(a) Obstructing Government Operations; C.R.S. 18-9-108, Disrupting Lawful Assembly; and 18-9-110, Public Buildings – trespass, interference. Our investigation will document what occurred, what violations occurred, and what warnings were provided (letter from City Manager). Any future criminal behavior on your part will likely result in more”than just a warning.”
Brigham has also received a letter from the city manager telling him he was being investigated. Mayor Susan Osborne also wrote to Brigham telling him ” there were consequences”
Brigham has created an email thread over the past week where he included amongst others Boulder Channel 1 and Judd Golden from the ACLU. Golden was a willing recipient in the email thread but singled out chief Beckner here showing his biased aganst Police :According to Judd Golden in a letter Today to Chief Beckner: “
“Please do not continue to copy the Boulder County ACLU on these messages regarding Seth Brigham. The ACLU has no information about this incident. We do not represent Mr. Brigham or speak for him. The ACLU takes no position on his conduct which is the subject of this email thread or the law enforcement response thereto. However, as we have repeatedly stated: The ACLU urges Council to make needed changes in the rules of decorum for public participation as has been proposed to Council by the City Attorney.”
Brigham has admittedly suffered from mental health problems , but his recent appearances at Council have him drunk and disorderly according to witness’s.
As a point of disclosure Seth Brigham has been a contributor to Boulder Channel 1 news. This story is about him, not by him.
