Sundance police log: street performers, a run-over foot and towed vehicles

by Jay Hamburger OF THE RECORD STAFF

The Park City Police Department last week handled numerous calls related to the Sundance Film Festival crowds, with the usual complaints about partying and towed vehicles among them.

Some of the calls that involved festival-goers or people seeming to be in Park City for Sundance included:

On Saturday, Jan. 30 at 12:15 p.m., the police received a complaint about street performers on Main Street. The person who contacted the police indicated the performers were outside a business collecting money in a tip jar. A man was playing a wind instrument known as a didgeridoo and a woman had a hula hoop, the police were told.

On Friday, Jan. 29 at 9:22 p.m., small group of street dancers were seen on the 300 block of Main Street. A police officer requested they move to another location for safety.

On Thursday, Jan. 28 at 9:18 a.m., a woman on Little Belle Court contacted the police with a complaint about a lodging booking. The woman sent money to book a place to stay during Sundance, but then found she might have been a fraud victim, the police were told. Public police logs did not provide details, including how much the woman sent.

On Monday, Jan. 25 at 4:53 p.m., a parking attendant’s foot was run over on the 1200 block of Park Avenue by someone driving a Subaru. The attendant declined medical attention, according to the police. The case occurred on the same block as the Park City Library and Education Center, which housed a screening room during Sundance.
