911 call released in Olympic skier Picabo Street’s assault case
SALT LAKE CITY — A 911 call recording reveals Olympic gold-medalist skier Picabo Street told police that her father attacked her during the Utah fight that led authorities to charge her with domestic violence and assault.
Picabo Street can be heard in the recording released Thursday saying her dad Roland Street pulled her hair before she “put” him downstairs. A woman she calls mom is audible in the background disputing that version.
Prosecutors say an investigation determined Picabo Street was the aggressor. She’s accused of throwing her 76-year-old father down the stairs and locking him in the basement.
Picabo Street’s lawyer says she denies wrongdoing.
Roland Street was not charged in the fight near Park City on Dec. 23.
Picabo Street won a gold medal at the 1998 Winter Olympics in the women’s super-G.
