Police Blotter

Surf’s up: A wedding party decided to take a golf cart for a joy ride Saturday night at Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis Club. One of the men hopped on top to “roof surf,” fell off and “got messed up pretty bad,” Teton County sheriff’s Sgt. Clay Platt said. The man was rushed to the hospital. No charges have been filed.

Brotherly love: Two brothers, ages 24 and 22, from Australia were tearing up the dance floor at 12:30 a.m. Aug. 19 at The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar when they attracted attention for having drinks in hand — a violation of bar policy. Staff asked the men to put their drinks down, but they refused. Employees then asked them to leave. “They told them they could F off,” Jackson police Lt. Roger Schultz said. Officers forcibly removed the men from the bar, and both were arrested for interference and public intoxication. One of the brothers was also charged with criminal trespass.

Sticky fingers: A woman was caught shoplifting from Albertsons and a manager made her pay $45 for the items she tried to steal, police said. She was escorted from the store.

Fancy bike missing: A $1,800 mountain bike was stolen during a concert at Snow King on Aug. 16. The turquoise bike wasn’t locked up.

Too drunk for The Cowboy: Is there a Jackson Hole BINGO that requires getting kicked out of the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar? A 50-year-old Park City, Utah, man was contacted by police on Aug. 20 because he was being aggressive and refused to leave The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar. Officers asked his friends to escort him home, but they also weren’t feeling cooperative. He was arrested for public intoxication and possession, the latter stemming from two marijuana cigarettes found in his pocket.

Stranger danger: A woman woke up at 1 a.m. Aug. 21 afraid because a drunk man was trying to get into her apartment. “He was belligerent because she wouldn’t let him in,” Schultz said. When the cops came, the man was so drunk he could barely stand. The 44-year-old Florida man, who blew .336%, was taken to the hospital before he was jailed for public intoxication.

Keep your hands to yourself: Around 2 a.m. Aug. 21 police noticed a group of women arguing with an older man in the Pink Garter Plaza. One of the women said the man had grabbed her butt and she wanted him to leave her alone. About four minutes later, the man was found laying on the ground in front of Pinky Gs. The 51-year-old Victor, Idaho, man was arrested for public intoxication.

Parkour! A drunk man climbed up an Aspen tree and onto someone’s roof at 1:30 a.m. Thursday and was yelling for the residents to let him in, police said. The man later admitted to police he couldn’t find his house. He was arrested for public intoxication and property damage, having damaged some shingles and kicked in a sliding glass door.

Angry August: Someone called police on a man who was “accosting people” while trying to hitch a ride over Teton Pass. Deputies found the man near the Wilson Post Office, where he proceeded to call them Nazis. While trying to get away he walked into traffic on the highway. Deputies went to restrain him at which point he made his body limp and yelled, “Nazis, Nazis, Nazis!” Deputies carried the 35-year-old to a police cruiser. The man who was jailed for interference has been arrested six times in the past for public intoxication or pedestrian under the influence, records show.

Late show: Police responded to Movieworks on Friday night for a drunk woman who was lying on the sidewalk outside the theater. She was also knocking on the glass windows, reports stated. The 25-year-old was arrested for public intoxication.

Special delivery: A drunk woman was found lying underneath a UPS truck on Gregory Lane. It was almost midnight and the man who found her said she had broken into the truck and didn’t want to come out. The woman was missing her shoes, wallet and phone and couldn’t provide an address or phone number in attempts to get her home. The 30-year-old became angry and was arrested for public intoxication.
