Police Blotter

A reporting party called police and said his uncle had been jumped at the Teton County Fair just after midnight Monday, Jackson police Lt. Russ Ruschill said. The uncle didn’t know the four males who jumped him. Police recommended they call back if they found out anything, but the uncle chose not to report the incident, and they have not called back.

A female reported to police at 10 a.m. Monday that she was being harassed by a male through electronic communication. She told police that she was friends with the male and made it obvious that she didn’t want a romantic relationship with him. He has been sending her lots of text messages and electronic communications not congruent with her feelings for him, she told police, and she requested assistance from law enforcement. Law enforcement called him and said to stop contacting her, Lt. Ruschill said.

A woman called police at 11 a.m. Monday after her son left his Nintendo Switch in the back pocket of a rental car. The mother called the rental car company, and a representative said they were unable to locate the device. The mother is sure her son left it in the car, and she said she is going to file a complaint against the rental company because she feels the company has not looked for the device and will not bring it to the airport for her.

Police arrested a 32-year-old Jackson resident after somebody reported a hit-and-run collision near the 300 block of West Pearl Avenue at 11 p.m. July 31. An officer found the car, approached the vehicle and found one person in the vehicle sitting in the passenger seat. The officer noticed multiple signs of intoxication, Lt. Ruschill said, and the man registered a 0.22 BAC on his breath test in jail. The person sitting in the passenger seat, who police found was the driver, ran his car into four vehicles: a gray Infinity, green Toyota Highlander, Toyota Tundra and Ford Expedition. Officers arrested the man for DUI and wrote him a citation for the collision.

A Teton County Sheriff’s officer stopped a vehicle for going 53 mph in a 35 zone on Highway 390 at 12:36 a.m. July 27. The driver reported drinking two glasses of wine, performed poorly on sobriety tests and blew a .135 BAC, sheriff’s Sgt. Clay Platt said. The person was booked for a DUI over 0.08%.

An officer pulled over a vehicle for going 60 mph in a 45 zone on Highway 22. The deputy smelled marijuana upon approaching the vehicle and located a small amount in a bag in the rear seat of the vehicle. The driver was cited and released, Sgt. Platt said.

An officer found a small amount of plant-form marijuana in a vehicle after pulling over the driver for going 70 mph in a 55 zone at 4 p.m July 29, Sgt. Platt said. The driver was cited for possessing marijuana, in plant and liquid form, and released.

Information in the police blotter is gathered from law enforcement, county courts and sometimes radio dispatch and witnesses. Those jailed are charged, not convicted. — Eds.
