At about 11:20 p.m. Sunday, police were called to a party at the home owned by Miki Spies, where they entered the backyard and found numerous minors consuming alcohol, according to the police report by officer Darrell Robertson. Police found a keg of beer and several bottles of liquor, and when they approached Miki Spies, she would not give her name or any other identification, the report states. She then began talking over Robertson and tried to “herd the crowd of partygoers into her house,’’ Robertson wrote in the report.
Spies then began walking toward her home, ignoring verbal commands from Robertson that she stop or be arrested, and she “broke into a full sprint to her front door,’’ according to the report. She ran into her bedroom and tried to slam the door on the police before she was eventually arrested while refusing to leave her bed. When the police were chasing her, the other minors at the party were able to flee the scene without being detained, according to the report. Police have not determined who purchased the alcohol, but providing a venue for minors to drink is a felony offense.
Sydney Spies was arrested for attempting to block an officer from entering the home. She resisted when officers tried to handcuff her, refusing to walk on her own and then unbuckling the seatbelt in the back of the police car and trying to flee. She started screaming and nearly kicked Robertson in the groin, according to the report.

On Jan. 9, Sydney Spies and her mother appeared on TODAY in the middle of a controversy over her yearbook photo. An aspiring model, she submitted a racy picture of her posing in a black shawl and short yellow skirt. The photo was rejected by the yearbook staff at Durango High School, and she and her mother felt it was a case of censorship by the yearbook staff, which was made up of fellow high school students.
"I honestly think (the picture) describes who I am," Sydney told Matt Lauer. "I'm an outgoing person and I really do think it’s artistic."
The incident on Monday is the second arrest in less than two months for Miki Spies, who was detained on June 24 on suspicion of trespassing, resisting arrest and obstructing a police officer, according to The Durango Herald. Spies and a local woman were reported for refusing to leave the playground at a local church at 5 a.m., and Spies became unruly and exhibited behavior consistent with someone who had consumed alcohol.
Sydney Spies is scheduled to appear in La Plata County Court on Aug. 22 for Monday’s incident, and Miki Spies is schedule to appear on Aug. 28.
