Park City police blotter
The Park City Police Department last week responded to a series of cases involving people who were suspected to be intoxicated, primarily, it seemed, a result of the large crowds in the city.
On Sunday, Aug. 14, the police received two reports in a span of a few minutes. The first case was logged at 8:44 p.m. on Main Street while the other, also on Main Street, was reported at 8:50 p.m.
On Saturday, Aug. 13, a case was logged on Crestline Drive at 8:52 p.m. The Police Department also on Saturday logged two suspected intoxication cases within a short time of each other in Old Town.

The Police Department on Saturday, meanwhile, was summoned to a business at or close to the intersection of Main Street and Heber Avenue at 12:12 p.m. as the business had an employee who was suspected to be intoxicated leave the premises.
