Park City police blotter: Complaint involves ‘people yelling like they are having fun’
The Park City Police Department last week received complaints about noise that usually indicate the community was busy.
The cases did not appear to be serious and they were typical for times when there are lots of people in Park City. The city has remained crowded through the first weeks of the fall shoulder season as crowds have flocked to the mountains with the nice weather.
Some of the cases last week included:
• on Sunday, Sept. 26 at 11:30 p.m., a loud party was reported on Sidewinder Drive, apparently at a lodging property. The police were told the front desk received two complaints. The Police Department logged the case as suspected disturbing the peace.
• on Saturday, Sept. 25 at 1:10 a.m., the police were called to Empire Avenue, where someone reported the music was loud and there were “people yelling like they are having fun,” according to public police logs. The person who contacted the police indicated the issue had been occurring for several hours.
