Police Blotter

Party every night: Police were called to a loud party in the 300 block of South Glenwood over the weekend. That’s the fifth visit officers have made there because of noise complaints, according to reports. When the responding officer parked, “Cocaine” by Eric Clapton was playing. As he approached the house, the music changed to “Bohemian Rhapsody.” A 30-year-old woman was cited with breach of peace.

Two drinks, tops: A 21-year-old Wilson man who apparently didn’t yield to pedestrians in a downtown crosswalk at 2:30 a.m. Aug. 12 was arrested for DUI. The man said he had “a drink and a half to two drinks, tops.” He blew a 0.182%.

Missing box trailer: A local company lost a $5,000 pull-behind enclosed trailer, police said. The company has 23 trailers and doesn’t do a great job of keeping track of them, police said. Now they think it may have been stolen. The white 2005 12-foot long trailer has Wyoming plates, 22-2503.

Long gone: A man who said his $2,500 Nikon camera was stolen out of the backseat of his car in April of 2018 called police last week to report the theft. He needed a police report for an insurance claim.

Drunken mess: A woman who rear-ended a pickup truck and then tried to hurry away from the scene collided with another car as she was fleeing. The 26-year-old Wilson woman blew a 0.22% and said the cocaine that was in her car was something she was hanging onto for a friend. She was arrested for DUI, possession and hit and run.

Illegal cabbie: A taxi driver was pulled over around 11:30 p.m. on Aug. 13 because he had an illegal blue light on the top of his cab. “It’s a violation of state statute,” Jackson police Lt. Roger Schultz said. “Only cops can have blue lights.” The 43-year-old taxi driver had an active felony warrant out of Nevada for theft and was arrested.

Ticket to nowhere: A woman kept showing up to the Jackson Hole Airport with luggage last week but she didn’t have a ticket to fly, police said. The 22-year-old Honolulu woman was in trouble for not paying $80 worth of cab fares to and from the airport, and when officers asked her to pay up she refused. The woman also refused to leave the airport terminal, so she was arrested for theft and trespass.

Bathroom nap: A drunk man passed out in a public restroom on Friday. When officers went to check on him and asked why he was asleep in the restroom, he said, “Um, yeah, my, um, mother, yeah.” The Maryland man said he was headed to Idaho. The 34-year-old was arrested for public intoxication.

Screws loose: A California woman who was walking on the Town Square stepped on a loose screw and it punctured her shoe and her heel, she said. Officers went and removed the screws from the boardwalk.
