On March 22, 2020 at approximately 8:41 p.m., the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office communication center received a call about an adult male actively threatening people outside his room with a 10 to 12 inch knife at the Motel 6, located at 3900 East Mulberry Street in Fort Collins. Additional reports indicated the man, identified as Joshua Jackson (09/27/1993), had also barricaded himself in his room.

When deputies arrived, they attempted to contact Jackson and learned he possibly had another weapon in addition to the knife which prompted a response from the Larimer County Regional SWAT team. Once they arrived, SWAT learned that Jackson made significant efforts to barricade himself inside the room by using furniture to block the door. 

Deputies evacuated nearby motel rooms as negotiators continued attempts to speak with him and convince him to come outside.  Jackson would not exit so chemical munitions were deployed into the room.  Jackson exited the room at approximately 12:13 a.m. and was arrested.  Once in custody, Jackson began spitting at deputies. He was transported to the Larimer County Jail and booked on the following allegations:

Menacing – F5
Criminal Mischief – F6
Refusal to Leave Premises Upon Request – M1
Attempted 3rd Degree Assault on a Peace Officer x3 – M2
Violation of Bail Bond Conditions x6 – 4 Felony, 2 Misdemeanor

Bond was set at $9,000.  A booking photo is attached.

The charges are merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until, and unless, proven guilty.
