Argument over taxi in Park City leads to fisticuffs
The Park City Police Department last week continued to be busy on Main Street and elsewhere with reports of fights, drunkenness and similar complaints.
On Sunday, Feb. 22 at 1:30 a.m., the police received a report of two men fighting outside a Main Street nightclub. Officers arrived and found that the men were fighting over a taxi. An argument turned into fisticuffs, the police were told. Nightclub staffers separated and restrained them, the police said.
The Park City Fire District cleared the two medically. Neither of them wanted to press charges. They were released and took taxis away from the scene.
Earlier that night, at 9:40 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 21, a fight was reported somewhere along Park Avenue. The parties were separated by the time the police arrived. The police said the people were involved in an argument. One of the people involved walked away and the other one attacked, the police said. The Park City Fire District responded, but the victim did not require medical assistance. The police arrested the suspect on an assault charge and booked the person into jail, the Police Department said.
Early on Saturday, Feb. 21 and late on Friday, Feb. 20, the police responded to reports along Main Street involving unspecified disorderly conduct and at least one person suspected to be intoxicated.
It has been a busy stretch for the police in recent weeks as large ski-season crowds descended on Park City.

A member of the Park City Planning Commission for at least the second time in less than a year spoke publicly about a concept that would financially involve City Hall in a development proposal at Park City Mountain Resort. Planning Commissioner John Phillips did not address the concept in any depth during a lengthy meeting.
