Park City police: it was another wild week on Main Street

by Jay Hamburger THE PARK RECORD

The Park City Police Department last week was busy with cases along Main Street for a second consecutive week as large spring break crowds continued to descend on the shopping, dining an entertainment strip.

The police responded to a series of reports involving drunkenness, disorderly people or other sorts of cases on or just off of Main Street.

And, in what appears to be a report of an early celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, three bagpipers were seen somewhere along Main Street at 5:27 p.m. on Saturday, March 15. The police were told the bagpipers were on the sidewalk with a hat asking for money. Some people eating dinner did not want to hear the bagpipers, the police were told.

Some of the other cases on or close to Main Street last week included:

  • on Sunday, March 16 at 2:36 p.m., someone reportedly used a fake identification or someone else’s identification to attempt to get into a nightclub on the 200 block of Main Street.
  • on March 16 at 2:01 a.m. an unsecured door was discovered somewhere along Main Street. The police were told it appeared someone had tampered with the door. The police classified the case as suspected criminal mischief.
  • on March 16 at 1:30 a.m., a person suspected to be intoxicated was seen on the 400 block of Main Street
  • on Saturday, March 15 at 10:27 p.m., a man reportedly refused to leave a nightclub on the 600 block of Main Street and threatened security, the police were told. The police classified the case as suspected disorderly conduct.
  • on March 15 at 2:05 a.m., vehicle described as a party bus was reportedly late as people waited on the 200 block of Main Street. The people were dressed in shorts and T-shirts and were freezing, the police were told.
  • on March 15 at 1:12 a.m., three women were reportedly removed from a nightclub several times. They were ordered out after bringing their own beer inside, the police were told.
  • on March 15 at 12:41 a.m., a case suspected to be disorderly conduct was reported on the 500 block of Main Street. The police said the person might have been intoxicated.
  • on Thursday, March 13 at 7:11 p.m., a person who might have been intoxicated was reported to be on a bus on the 400 block of Swede Alley.
  • on March 13 at 12:47 a.m., a resisting arrest case was reported somewhere along Main Street. Public police logs did not provide details about the charges the person faced.
  • on Wednesday, March 12 at 1:16 a.m., the police received a report of a confrontation that apparently occurred between three women somewhere along Main Street. Police logs said one of the women dragged the other two women by their hair. The two women dragged by their hair are friends, the police were told. The suspect wore a striped shirt, a red jacket and black sweats, the police were told.
  • on Monday, March 10 at 3:53 p.m., the police were told two men covered in vomit went into a business on the 800 block of Main Street. They were intoxicated, the police were told.

    Phil Kirk, a police captain, said the cases did not involve serious injuries or charges. He said it has been "extremely busy" in Park City with the spring break crowds. Kirk anticipates this week will be busy as well as more people on spring break arrive. He also noted the snow early in the week could draw people.

    "We’ve seen a huge increase in the number of calls and problems we’ve had, particularly on Main Street," Kirk said.
