The Park City Police Department received numerous reports of fisticuffs, loud music and other annoyances last week, a busy stretch coming during what was anticipated to be a relatively slow week after some of the summer's biggest events were held recently.
Public police logs did not provide detailed information about the cases, but the reports were logged throughout the week. In some cases, fistfights were reported along Main Street and in others people were unhappy with noise in their neighborhood.
On Sunday, Aug. 18 at 1:17 a.m., the police were summoned to a nightclub on the 400 block of Main Street after a report involving disorderly conduct. The police said the parties were separated and were leaving. Just earlier, at 12:55 a.m., another case of disorderly conduct was reported in a nightclub on the same block of Main Street. Police logs did not provide details.
At 12:45 a.m., meanwhile, two men were reported to be fighting at a nightclub on the 300 block of Main Street. A hat was apparently in dispute, the police were told.
In the same evening, at 11:37 p.m. on Saturday Aug. 17, the police were called to the 600 block of Main Street, where a fight was reported. The police indicated one man, said to be shirtless, and two women were involved.
Ten minutes before, at 11:27 p.m., the police received a report of an assault either in a nightclub or just outside one on Main Street. One of the men involved suffered a black eye after being hit in the face, the police were told. The suspect, a man, is six foot, three inches tall, the police were told.
On Wednesday, Aug. 14 at 11:41 p.m., a man, reported to be intoxicated, was escorted out of a Main Street nightclub without incident.
In another case, detailed in a Police Department online posting, a fight was reported in a Main Street nightclub in the early morning hours midweek. The police were told a man suspected to be intoxicated refused to leave the nightclub. An employee of the nightclub then hit the man, the man hit back and then "continued to hit the employee excessively," causing an undisclosed injury, according to the online posting.
The police said the man who was believed to be intoxicated was arrested on charges of assault and failing to leave a bar and was taken to jail. The nightclub employee was written an assault citation and released, the police said.
At about the same time, at a different Main Street nightclub, the police arrested a man after he was asked to leave but did not do so, the police said. The police said nightclub employees asked the man to leave repeatedly "due to his high level of intoxication." As employees attempted to remove him he became disorderly, the police said. The online statement indicated the man was booked into jail on counts of intoxication, disorderly conduct and failing to leave the bar.
The Police Department, meanwhile, handled numerous complaints about parties and noise last week. Some of those cases, generally in Old Town, included:
The reports came in a week after a series of major summer events, including the Tour of Utah bicycling race and the Park City Kimball Arts Festival. The police were busy those weekends as well.
