article imageThe Wild West Taser Style

By KJ Mullins     May 19, 2008 in Crime
When Harvey Epstein, co-owner of Mamacitas restaurant in Boulder, Colorado and Casey M. Dane, a supervisor for Colorado Security Services Inc. started to argue over a metal boot that was parked behind Epstein the guns came out, Tasers that is.
Epstein was using a bolt cutter to try and remove the boot that a guard employed by Dane had placed on a wheel of a van that was parked behind the restaurateur.
When Dane confronted Epstein he said he was afraid the man was going to hit him with the bolt cutter. Epstein said he never threatened anyone.
Epstein said that Dane had his hand on a holstered pistol and said he was going to shoot. Dane says his hand was there but he never said he was going to shoot.
Then it turned into the Old West with both men drawing their own Taser.
"They shot each other," Police Sgt. Pat Wyton told the Camera newspaper. "It was just kind of a bonehead deal."
In the end it was Epstein that was arrested on suspicion of felony menacing and using a stun gun.
Neither man needed medical attention.
