Bryan Coe.

Update: Denver Police make arrest in Gabriel Pico death

As noted in "Glacially Paced Investigation into DNC Visitor Gabriel Pico's Death Finally Moving Forward," the Denver Police haven't exactly set any records when it comes to charging someone in the August 30 incident that took the life of Gabriel Pico, 41, a member of California's Pechanga Tribal Council in town for the Democratic National Convention. But at last, an arrest has been made: Bryan Coe, 39, is being held for investigation of reckless manslaughter. According to Denver District Attorney's Office spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough, Coe was an employee of the Diamond Cabaret, where Pico died. Presumably, then, he was the bouncer mentioned in earlier reports as trying to separate Pico from other assailants -- two of whom were arrested earlier this month.
