Arapahoe County, CO: Restraining order failed shooting victim

Anastasia Glinisty, 23, did everything the system allowed in an effort to protect herself.

She filed court papers to obtain a permanent restraining order against her former boyfriend Christopher Fields. The restraining order specified Fields could not get within 1000 feet of Glinisty’s place of employment, her home or a dance studio she attended.

Instead of going to those three locations, Fields allegedly shot Glinisty on the exit ramp of I-25 as she drove to work on Wednesday morning. Deputies with the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office believe Fields stepped in front of her car and fired a single shot through the windshield.

Glinisty is in good condition at an area hospital.
