A person at the Rose called police Sept. 11 around 11 p.m. saying a woman, who had been prohibited from entering the establishment, was trespassing. Police responded to the call and found the woman a block away from the Rose, Jackson Police Lt. Russ Ruschill said. They issued her a citation for trespassing. That same night, a person at the Silver Dollar Bar & Grill called police about that same woman harassing customers and assaulting a patron. When police showed up, they learned that a bartender wouldn’t serve the woman a drink, after which the woman began yelling about people raping children. Soon after, she shoved a person sitting at the bar. Police arrested the middle-aged Jackson resident for unlawful contact.
An officer came across a woman lying on the street after an apparent bicycle crash Sept. 11 at about 10:30 p.m. The officer found the 34-year-old woman, a resident of Denver, sitting by the intersection of Center Street and Deloney Avenue with bloodshot eyes and no shoes on, Lt. Ruschill said. The woman, who the officer noted smelled like alcohol, wasn’t wearing shoes and told the officer she wasn’t wearing shoes all night. The officer, however, noticed a single sandal near the woman, although he could not confirm whether that sandal was hers. The officer then arrested the woman, who had a .313 BAC, for public intoxication.
An officer responded to an area near Skinny Skis after noticing two intoxicated males hopping in and out of an unoccupied taxi. Officers approached to find a 27-year-old Jackson man and a 30-year-old Jackson man sitting in a 2013 Chevrolet Suburban, which had visible Town of Jackson taxi permits on the front window, Lt. Ruschill said. The man sitting in the driver’s seat was sleeping, and the other had bloodshot eyes. Officers asked the men to leave the taxi and tried to find them a ride home, but one of the men was so impaired he could not operate the Uber app, and there weren’t any available taxis. With no safe and sure way home, the officers arrested both men for public intoxication. One of the men blew a .355.
Officers responded to the Virginian Lodge in the early morning Sept. 9 to find a woman passed out in the hotel laundry room. The 51-year-old Valley Center, California, resident told officers she had nowhere to stay, no money and no usable phone, according to Lt. Ruschill. The woman admitted to drinking liquor. Because she had nowhere to go and blew a .211, officers arrested her for public intoxication.
An officer observed a man illegally camping in his truck in the town parking garage Sept. 10 at 10:30 p.m. When he approached the truck, the officer knocked on the window and saw a bong in plain view. The occupant tried to hide the bong after the officer knocked on the door, Lt. Ruschill said, but the officer smelled marijuana and saw the man trying to hide the bong. The officer then took away the bong but didn’t issue a citation for camping or marijuana.
