Boulder County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man Thursday morning using tear gas after he led them on a pursuit in a stolen moving van in Boulder County and Longmont.
Darell Dickens, 48, of Aurora, was arrested and taken to a hospital because of self-inflicted injuries. According to a Boulder County Sheriff’s Office release, Dickens told deputies “he was under the influence of methamphetamine and alcohol.”
The sheriff’s office also says Dickens has a long criminal history that includes assault on a peace officer, dangerous drugs and parole violations.
The Boulder County Coroner's Office has identified the motorcyclist killed in an accident Monday in Louisville as Chad Blodget, 36, of Boulder.
Blodget died at Exempla Good Samaritan Medical Center in Lafayette after he was involved in a collision with an SUV on South Boulder Road at 7:40 a.m. Monday.
The Colorado State Patrol said Blodget was on a 2009 Suzuki motorcycle headed east on South Boulder Road when a 2004 Toyota Highlander headed west on South Boulder Road made a left onto McCaslin Boulevard in front of him.
The man who died Wednesday afternoon after his pickup truck crashed into a warehouse has been identified as Carlos Bustillos of Longmont.

Bustillos died in the accident, which happened at 110 S. Bowen Circle, near Boston Avenue. After the crash, the warehouse caught fire.
