Park City police: Revelers, including one in a Santa hat, cause issues

The Park City Police Department last week responded to a series of cases that appeared to be a result of the uptick in crowds in the community as skiers were drawn by early season snows and revelers were out celebrating the holidays.

The cases did not appear to be serious, but they may be an indication the weeks before the holidays could be a busy stretch. The cases appeared to involve drunkenness, noisy people and similar sorts of reports.

Some of the cases included:

• on Sunday, Dec. 2 at 1:17 a.m., several people were reported to be causing problems at the front door of a business on Main Street at 1:17 a.m. The people were attempting to start a fight, the police were told. The Police Department classified the case as suspected disorderly conduct.

• on Dec. 2 at 12:48 a.m., a man wearing a Santa Claus hat was not allowed into a Main Street nightclub and was “giving them problems,” according to the Police Department. The case was classified as suspected disorderly conduct.

• on Saturday, Dec. 1 at 11:33 p.m., the police received a report from a man who claimed a group of people attacked him on Main Street. The people shoved the man and told him he could not go into an unspecified building. The man, though, sounded like he might have been intoxicated, according to police logs.

• on Dec. 1 at 11:30 p.m., a person at a Main Street business refused to leave, the police were told. The person had been escorted off the property and then returned, according to the Police Department, which classified the case as suspected disorderly conduct.

The Police Department on Dec. 1 at 10:47 p.m., meanwhile, was called to assist with crowd control on Main Street.
