The following people were booked into the Carson City Jail. All are presumed innocent until proven guilty in court.


• At 12:20 p.m., Matthew Colwell, 47, was charged with possession of a firearm by a prohibited person after he was stopped by a P&P officer because he was on deferred sentencing. He informed the P&P officer and the deputy there was a pistol in the glove box that belonged to his girlfriend but she was not present. His bail was set at $20,000 on the firearm charged and $3,000 for violating his sentence conditions.

• At 6:43 p.m., a 24-year-old was charged with two counts of open and gross lewdness after allegedly exposing himself to the doorbell camera of two adjacent residences. The doorbell camera recorded the incident. Bail was set at $5,000.

• At 9:35 p.m., a 50-year-old woman was charged as an ex-felon failing to register after she was apprehended for running from deputies at the Nugget parking lot. The arrest report says she claimed to be living with her mother but her mother said she left that residence in March. Bail was set at $150.


• At 12:08 a.m., a 33-year-old man was arrested after a traffic stop at 5th and Roop for driving erratically and running stop signs. In addition to that charge, he was charged with driving on a suspended registration, no proof of insurance and no valid driver’s license. Bail was set at $1,200.

While talking to the alleged victim, the deputy said the defendant came out of her apartment and began yelling as she walked down the hall. When told to go back in her apartment, the report says she flipped off the deputy and approached in a threatening manner with fists clenched. The other residents said since she was acting in a threatening manner, they wanted to press charges. She tried to escape into the apartment after being arrested and had to be restrained.
