Police: Fired worker crashes car into day care

More Information


A Denver woman faces assault with deadly weapon charges after she crashed her vehicle into the front door of a day care center occupied by children, authorities said.

Amy Susan Fier, 60, used to work at Tutor Time Day Care Center in Denver but had recently been terminated, according to Lincoln County sheriff’s deputies.

Fier rammed her car into the double metal and glass front doors of the building at about 2:55 p.m. Tuesday, deputies said. Several elementary-school-age children were in the front lobby at the time but none of them were injured.

About 30 minutes before the incident, deputies had responded to the day care center for a disturbance call involving Fier.

Fier is charged with multiple misdemeanors, including assault with a deadly weapon, second-degree trespassing, communicating threats and injury to real property.

She was released from jail after posting $8,000 bond.
