The Colorado man who allegedly fired a gun in downtown Moab on Aug. 1 has pleaded not guilty to all charges and will likely stand trial Nov. 3 in Moab’s 7th District Court.

Patrick Trujillo, 33, of Denver, entered not guilty pleas during his Aug. 29 arraignment to second and third degree felonies including assault against a peace officer with a weapon, using a concealed weapon in commission of a violent felony and the possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person.

He also faces a class-A misdemeanor charge of threatening to use a dangerous weapon in a fight and class-B misdemeanors including threat of violence, impersonation of an officer and a class-C misdemeanor of disorderly conduct.
