The Park City Police Department over the opening days of the Sundance Film Festival responded to calls involving parking issues, suspected disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace.

The cases appeared to be similar in nature to those logged during the opening days of Sundance in previous years, as crowds converged for the first in-person festival since 2020.

Some of the cases included:



On Sunday, Jan. 22 at 8:47 p.m., a police officer pulled over a driver in the area of the intersection of Bonanza Drive and Prospector Avenue after observing a blue light visible on the front of the vehicle. The police said there was a headlight violation as well.

A person was suspected to be intoxicated at the intersection of Main Street and Heber Avenue at 3:02 p.m. Public police logs did not provide details.



A hit-and-run traffic accident was logged in the China Bridge garage at 2:54 p.m. Public police logs did not provide details.

A case classified as suspected lewdness was reported on Main Street at 2:22 p.m. Public police logs did not provide details.
