Vernal, Ut.- On 01/28/2023, Officer Elmer was dispatched to a Protective Order Violation and met with the complainant. He was shown messages that she had received from her Ex-husband, Cort R. Warren.
Officer Elmer was informed that she had a protective order against him, stating that they were only to have contact with each other about the child they shared between them.
Officer Elmer read the messages and verified that the protective order was current and active.
With this information Officer Elmer determined that Cort violated the protective order. He then went to contact Cort at his residence. When Officer Elmer arrived, Cort opened the door, then shut and locked it.
After announcing themselves, Cort came back to the door. Cort then reopened the door and came outside. Officer Elmer asked Cort if he had contact with anyone that night, and his reply was, "Fuck You."
Cort then tried to go back inside his house. Officer Elmer told Cort to stop, and he proceeded to say, "Fuck You."
Officer Elmer went to arrest Cort for the protective Order Violation and could smell the odor of alcohol coming from his breath.
While taking Cort into custody, he fought against Sgt. Roth and Officer Elmer to keep from being arrested by trying to push the both of them away, then placing his arms underneath him to keep the police from putting him in handcuffs.
Cort was eventually placed into handcuffs and then taken to Officer Elmer's patrol vehicle, where he fought against Sgt. Roth and Officer Elmer pushed off the truck with his feet and tried to pull away from both of them while screaming profanities at Sgt. Roth and Officer Elmer.
Officer Elmer gave Cort a Disorderly Warning, and he kept screaming, "Fuck You, and saying, “I should have my Ak-47".
Cort was transported to the Uintah County Jail, where he was booked and charged with violation of protective order, interference with arresting officer, intoxication, disorderly conduct, and a state-wide warrant that was issued for Cort's arrest.
