Police Blotter

Police took a report of an assault on Friday at 9 p.m. but the victim was too drunk to provide enough details for an investigation, Jackson Police Lt. Roger Schultz said.

An officer responded to a report of animal cruelty on Sunday morning after someone complained about an 8-year-old child being too rough with a puppy. The puppy did have an eye injury but the parents claimed that was from another dog biting the puppy. The officer talked to the parents about the treatment of the puppy and they agreed to limit the child’s unsupervised contact with the pet.

Someone received a bogus check on Thursday that appeared to be signed by the Teton County School District. The check is suspected to be part of a scam.

Police were called April 8 because two children were attempted to cross Highway 89 by themselves. Officers stayed with the kids until their mother came. The children had wandered off when she wasn’t looking, she said.

Officers arrested a man on April 8 just after 3 p.m. for reportedly throwing objects at people in the Dollar Tree parking lot. It was also reported that the man threw a glass bottle at someone’s car. The 39-year-old Jackson man was arrested for public intoxication.

A 21-year-old was cited last week for providing alcohol to an 18-year-old after someone reported around 1 a.m. April 7 the smell of marijuana and loud music coming from a house nearby. The 18-year-old was cited for being a minor under the influence and for possession of a controlled substance.

A man called police last week about someone vandalizing his car with spray paint. The victim said he thought he knew who did it so he went to that person’s house to confront him and the suspect punched him and a fight broke out. Officers cited the man for battery but couldn’t prove any destruction of property.

A woman was injured while cross-country skiing on Sunday at Turpin Meadows. Teton County Search and Rescue sent a three-person team but employees at Turpin were able to package the woman and transfer her to an ambulance.

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