Man Who Tried To Run Down Valet Avoids Prison

DENVER (CBS4) – The man who tried to run down a valet at a Cherry Creek North hotel will not be going to prison.

Tracy Ottaway plea bargained an attempted murder charge down to two felony menacing charges.

On Tuesday morning the judge sentenced Ottaway to four years probation.

Ottaway drove his black Escalade directly at a hotel valet last August outside the J.W. Marriot hotel. Investigators say he had been targeting the valet for a month after he had been told he could not use the valet phone.

    Someone should stalk this crazy jerk with a Toyota Tundra and put him out of his misery. He’s ticked off at a valet because the valet wouldn’t let him use a PHONE? You would think a guy who drives an Escalade can afford to have a cell phone.

    Gives to meaning to Rollover minutes. I agree Tammy, he should go to prison and be mistreated. My guess he has spent his entire existance mistreating other, and this will undoughtedly continue

    I think the real issue here is this: WHY CAN’T YOU PEOPLE PROOFREAD YOUR COMMENTS BEFORE YOU SEND THEM? Your spelling is terrible, as well as your sentence composition. Crucifacation? What is that? Wouldn’t the word be crucifixion?

    It’s amazing to me that people no longer seem to care about how awful their grammar and spelling is when they send an email or post a message on a forum like this. They are in such a rush to be heard that they don’t bother to review their message.

    As for the guy who got probation; I believe that he should have gotten some prison time and forfeiture of his driver’s license for two years. His actions were inexcusable, much like the spelling and grammar on this forum. I’m just not sure which one is worse.

      I agree with you that 99% of the postings in these forums are written by people whose spelling and grammar is absolutely ATROCIOUS. These people never did well in school and it shows.

    Seems he had time to get his hair highlighted (what little is left)……This wannabe trendy yuppy needs to go to jail, this was so premeditated. Another wannabe with an attitude, he thinks he is better than a lot of people……………..NOT.
