Police Blotter, Dec. 10-12, 2014


The Park City Police Department on Sunday responded to two cases involving what were reported as problem passengers in taxis.

A taxi driver contacted the police at 9:17 a.m. reporting that a woman passenger slammed the car door and made threatening gestures. The case was logged on Park Avenue.

The police, meanwhile, were contacted at 1:36 a.m. about a case on Main Street involving a taxi driver and a person, apparently a passenger, who was reported to be intoxicated. The person reportedly vomited in the vehicle and the driver wanted the person to pay for the cleanup, according to police logs. The Police Department indicated the case was a civil matter rather than a criminal one.

Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:
