Fisticuffs, drunkenness reported on Main Street

by Jay Hamburger THE PARK RECORD

The Park City Police Department last week responded to a series of cases involving fisticuffs or drunkenness along Main Street.

The street has been busy with spring break crowds since early March, and the reports appeared to be typical for times when there are lots of visitors in town.

On Saturday at 1:14 a.m., two reports were logged from the same Main Street nightclub, where a fight apparently broke out. One of the reports indicated 10 people inside the nightclub might have been involved. It said some of the others involved might have left and were behind the Main Street post office.

In an online statement, the police said three suspects fled toward Swede Alley when officers arrived. The police took them into custody after a foot pursuit, the statement said. Two of them were found to have been involved in the fight. The statement said two of the suspects were arrested on charges of assault, disorderly conduct, failure to stop at the command of the police and intoxication. The third person who was arrested does not face an assault charge but was charged with the other counts. The online statement said a few people suffered minor injuries in the fight.

Some of the other cases included:

  • on Saturday, March 8 at 10:10 p.m., a woman reportedly assaulted a man either at a Main Street nightclub or just outside one. The victim was apparently the doorman. She grabbed his sweat shirt and struck him in the chest, the police were told. The woman apparently refused to leave, according to the police.
  • on March 8 at 1:09 a.m., a fight was reported at the back door of a Main Street nightclub. The online statement said a suspect was arrested on charges of intoxication, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief.
  • on Sunday, March 9 at 1:46 a.m., a man reportedly fell down on the 400 block of Swede Alley. The police said the person was suspected to be intoxicated. An officer apparently shuttled the person to Sidewinder Drive.
  • on March 9 at 1:37 a.m. an unspecified disorderly conduct case was reported at or just outside a Main Street nightclub. Public police logs did not provide details.

    The Police Department last week also handled a series of suspected intoxication and drunken driving cases.
