With the investigation still ongoing, the Steamboat Springs Police Department has released reports and video related to the death of the 22-year-old man who fled from police and later drowned in the Yampa River. Arman “Jack” Qureshi’s roommates told police that Qureshi had a serious alcohol problem that was kept secret from his parents. According to roommates, Qureshi would drink up to a 1.75 liters of vodka daily. Steamboat Springs police say he ran from officers Sunday and jumped into the river to escape them. He also wrestled himself away from an officer who tried to pull him out of the water. Qureshi was suspected of trying to steal a purse downtown. He had recently moved to Steamboat Springs to work in the information technology industry.
