Taxi drivers need police assistance with problem passengers

Taxi drivers or dispatchers from taxi companies contacted the Park City Police Department at least twice last week reporting problems with passengers.

On Sunday, April 14, a suspected intoxication case was reported at 2:30 a.m. at the intersection of Heber Avenue and Main Street. The police said a taxi driver flagged down an officer, but it was not clear from public police logs whether the person suspected to be intoxicated was in the taxi.

Earlier that night, at 1:35 a.m., the police were called to a location along Park Avenue, where a person reportedly refused to pay a taxi fare. The person was "kind of confrontational," the police were told. The Police Department indicated the dispute appeared to be civil in nature rather than criminal.
