Officers Respond To A Call Of A Male Having Breathing Complication


Uintah County, Ut.—On 2/28/24, at 9:30 pm, dispatch was notified that a male was having breathing complications. While en route, dispatch stated they had received additional information that the male had ingested a narcotic and was having an overdose.

When police and medical staff arrived and entered the residence, the female stated her husband was very drunk, naked, and was last seen in the garage. Deputy Ogle went to the backyard, where he observed a naked adult male standing in the doorway of the garage.

The deputy approached the male and said they were there to help him. The male started walking toward the residence, stumbling while he walked. He seemed to be under the influence of an unknown substance, which was causing him to stagger.

As the deputy followed behind the male, he could smell the odor of alcohol emitting from his person, leading the deputy to believe he was very intoxicated.

They walked into the residence and the kitchen area, passing his wife. The male, identified as 53-year-old Shane Paul Litster, began playing on his phone when his wife tried to take it from him.

Shane turned around and aggressively grabbed his wife's arm, holding on tight. Deputy Ogle grabbed Shane's arms and started to get him to let go of his wife, but Shane wouldn't let go. Deputy Ogle attempted to place Shane's hands behind his back but resisted. Shane was escorted to the living room and placed face first onto the couch.

Deputy Pratt arrived and assisted with placing Shane in handcuffs. Other officers arrived and escorted Shane to a patrol vehicle.

Shane’s wife sustained marks on both arms from where Shane grabbed her.

After receiving a medical clearance from the hospital, Shane was transported to the Uintah County Jail.
