Park City police blotter

Alcohol issues and road rage reported

The Park City Police Department last week dealt with a series of cases involving people suspected to be intoxicated or disturbing the peace, something that is common with large crowds like those last week in the city.

The cases did not appear to be serious, but police officers seemed to remain busy with the reports and other incidents on or close to Main Street.

Some of the cases included:

  • on Sunday, March 20, at 1:56 a.m., a man suspected to be intoxicated was seen on the 500 block of Swede Alley, close to the Main Street post office. The person who contacted the police indicated they would wait for officers to show them where the man was, department logs said.
  • on March 20 at 12:54 a.m., a man, reported to be intoxicated, entered a vehicle on Main Street occupied by people who did not know him. He was "very friendly" and then exited, the police were told. The man then attempted to get into a back door of a restaurant, according to police logs.

    Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:

    On Sunday, March 20 at 10:19 a.m., a car reportedly broke down on Guardsman Connection. It was partially blocking the road and was considered a traffic hazard, the police were told. A tow truck was called.

    The police at 10:17 a.m. received a complaint about cars parked in a no-parking zone along Woodside Avenue, apparently in the vicinity of 14th Street. Some cars were parked in the wrong direction, the police were told.

    On Saturday, March 19, at 11 p.m., the police received a report of loud music on the 1200 block of Kearns Boulevard. The bass was especially notable, the police were told. The Police Department indicated the volume did not exceed the allowed limits.

    At 5:47 p.m., a vehicle collided with a moose along S.R. 224 at or close to the intersection with Holiday Ranch Loop Road. The animal ambled away, the police were told.

    An incident described as road rage was logged on the 1300 block of Lowell Avenue at 4:39 p.m. The person who contacted the police said the other driver "verbally abused" him and claimed the caller cut him off, according to the Police Department.

    A woman was suspected of shoplifting a pair of shorts on Main Street at 4:18 p.m. The woman was cooperating, the police said.

    At 1:16 p.m., the police received a report that a vehicle on Lower Iron Horse Loop Road had been vandalized. A rear light had been smashed, the police were told. The Police Department classified the case as criminal mischief.

    At 7:50 a.m., the police were told a car had been hit the night before on the 1400 block of Park Avenue. There was "a lot of damage to the vehicle," according to department logs. Nobody left a note.

    A dispute between a taxi driver and a passenger was reported on Main Street at 1:17 a.m. The police were told a woman got into a taxi and attempted to pay with a financial card. The driver, though, told her she needed to pay with cash "and that was the law," according to the police logs.

    A suspected drunken driving case was reported on Comstock Drive at 12:43 a.m. Public police logs did not provide details.

    At 2:20 p.m., someone on Telemark Drive told the police renters fill neighbors’ garbage cans with trash on a weekly basis on Wednesdays. The renters "made a big mess with the trash," the police were told.

    Skis were reportedly stolen from the outer door of a condominium somewhere along Woodside Avenue at 10:38 a.m.
