A Greeley, Colorado woman is wanted on Felony Menacing (C.R.S. 18-3-206), Reckless Endangerment (C.R.S. 18-3-208), and Illegal Discharge of a Firearm (C.R.S. 18-12-107.5) charges by Longmont police after firing a gun in a local bar.

Denver Reckless Endangerment: Commonly Charged with Weapon Issues

Reckless Endangerment is a class 3 misdemeanor, and it requires prosecutors to prove that a person recklessly engages in conduct which creates a substantial risk of serious bodily injury to another person. Reckless endangerment is often a "catch-all" charge that police in Colorado throw in for good measure when there is a weapon involved.

Douglas County Defense Attorney: Domestic Violence Sentence Enhancer

Although it is unclear whether these crimes will be charged as acts of domestic violence (C.R.S. 18-6-800.3), it is certainly possible since they occurred while the woman and her boyfriend were in an argument at the time she allegedly discharged her gun. Domestic violence in Colorado is not a separate charge, but rather a sentencing enhancer to crimes such as these. In order to charge a crime as an act of domestic violence, law enforcement in Boulder, Weld County, or Fort Collins must believe there is an "intimate relationship" between the accused and the alleged victim. Therefore, this woman could face domestic violence charges, even though her boyfriend was not injured in the least.
