It was not all love and kisses on Main Street on Valentine’s Day
It was not all love and kisses along Main Street on Valentine’s Day.
The Park City Police Department responded to a series of cases on Saturday night, which was Valentine’s Day, and in the overnight hours of Sunday. Some of them involved suspected drunken people. In one of the reports, the police were told a man touched two women inappropriately, apparently inside a nightclub.
Main Street was busy last weekend as large crowds descended on Park City for the three-day Presidents Day weekend, which is traditionally a busy ski holiday, and Valentine’s Day.
Some of the cases reported to the Police Department last week included:
The Police Department on Feb. 15, meanwhile, arrested a person at 1:57 a.m. on a drunken driving charge at the intersection of 5th Street and Swede Alley. Public police logs did not provide details. An unspecified disorderly conduct report was logged on Main Street at 1:01 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 13.
Phil Kirk, a Police Department captain, said the department anticipated a packed weekend. Extra officers were on duty throughout the weekend, he said. Kirk said no serious injuries were reported as a result of the assault or drunkenness reports.
"It was very busy, especially at nighttime," Kirk said.
He said officers also monitored the traffic situation as the police were worried about the possibility of major backups.
It has been a busy stretch on Main Street for the Police Department since the middle of January, including responses to three suspected drug overdoses in one night in January. Large Sundance Film Festival crowds descended on Main Street shortly afterward and last week’s raucousness followed a little bit later.
