Park City police blotter
Passenger refuses to get out of taxi
The Park City Police Department last week dealt with a series of people suspected to be intoxicated or seen acting in a disorderly manner.
None of the cases appeared to be serious, but the incidents illustrated a week that was busy at times in the early days of the ski season.
Some of the suspected intoxication cases reported last week included on Sunday, Dec. 4 at 1:14 a.m. on the 600 block of Main Street, Dec. 4 at 3:20 a.m. on Lowell Avenue and at 11:29 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3 at or close to the Main Street-Heber Avenue intersection.
In another suspected intoxication case, logged on Dec. 3 at 10:13 p.m. in an underground garage on Main Street, a taxi driver contacted the Police Department reporting a woman passenger refused to get out of the vehicle. She was suspected to be intoxicated, the police said.
A case logged as disorderly conduct, meanwhile, was reported on the 400 block of Main Street at 12:18 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 4 while an unspecified alcohol offense was logged on the 400 block of Marsac Avenue at 9:08 p.m.
