Park City police called after Main Street disorderliness

The Park City Police Department last week responded to at least two cases along Main Street involving some level of violence, including a fight in a nightclub.

Phil Kirk, a police captain, said nobody suffered serious injuries in the cases.

In one of the incidents, logged on Sunday, Dec. 10, a fight was reported in a Main Street nightclub. Someone used a glass to hit one of the people involved in the head. The person hit in the head did not want medical treatment and declined to pursue charges, the police said.

In another case, reported the previous day at a different nightclub, a man suspected to be intoxicated did not pay as he went inside. Staffers stopped him before he got into a concert, the police said.

“While he was being escorted out of the venue, he punched an exterior glass, shattering it,” the Police Department said in an online posting.

A medical crew evaluated the man. The police arrested the man and booked him into the Summit County Jail. The Police Department logged the case as suspected intoxication and criminal mischief.

Kirk said the Police Department often receives similar calls when concerts are held at Main Street nightclubs. He also said Park City becomes more crowded when the ski season starts.

“We’re seeing more busier nights on Main Street,” Kirk said.

The Police Department last week, meanwhile, responded to a report of a man in a road. The case was logged at 7:50 p.m. on Dec. 8 at or close to the intersection of Park Avenue and Snow Creek Drive. The authorities received several 911 calls about the man.

The police said in an online posting the man was in the middle of the road “darting in and out of traffic.” Officers removed him from the road, the police said, indicating he was suspected to be intoxicated. He “became belligerent with both law enforcement and fire/ems personnel,” the Police Department said.

The man was taken to the Park City Hospital and, after he was seen by medical personnel, taken to the Summit County Jail.
