On March 8, 2017, inmate Malik Richard Fiske (12/11/1997) was placed in a cell in the Larimer County Jail booking area after being removed from his normal housing assignment for refusing to comply with lockdown procedures. At approximately 4:20 p.m., Fiske was instructed to sit down in his cell so a deputy could provide him a meal. Fiske complied so the deputy opened the door and placed a meal inside the cell. As the deputy was closing the cell door, Fiske rushed her and prevented her from closing the door.
Fiske pushed the deputy, exiting the cell, and struck the deputy twice in the leg with his knee. Fiske then threw the deputy to the ground and ran toward the booking counter. Additional deputies ordered Fiske to stop, but he refused to comply. A deputy successfully deployed a Taser to gain control of Fiske and he was taken to the ground. Fiske continued to resist as he was restrained and he was placed back in the cell. The deputy Fiske assaulted sustained minor scrapes and bruising to her knees, elbows, and thigh.
Fiske was booked into the Larimer County Jail on March 3, 2017 for allegations of DUI, marijuana offenses, and traffic offenses. His bond was set at $4,000. He is now being held on the additional allegation of 2nd Degree Assault on a Peace Officer (Class 4 Felony). Bond was set at $7,500 for the new allegation.
A booking photo of Fiske is attached. No further information will be released at this time.
The charges are merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until, and unless, proven guilty.
