Police Blotter

A man was cited Friday evening after police said he was upset about dueling lines in the McDonald’s drive-thru and punched someone through his open car window. The 49-year-old Teton Village man was reportedly tired of waiting, got out of his car, yelled at a fellow customer and then punched him.

An 18-year-old Florida man was cited for trying to use a fake ID in order to get into the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar over the weekend. Last week officers cited an 18-year-old Wisconsin man, a 19-year-old California woman and a 20-year-old California man for the same offense.

Police said a man who was driving drunk Friday night hit someone’s car and took off. A witness pointed officers to the suspect’s apartment, where they cited him for open container and leaving the scene of an accident.

Just after 3 a.m. Saturday police stopped a car for going 70 in a 35 zone. The driver seemed drunk and blew a .13%. The 29-year-old Colorado man was arrested for DUI.

Employees of a store told police on Saturday afternoon that they had video to prove that a girl has been stealing from their store. Officers identified the girl and are working to notify her parents and decide which citations are appropriate.

On Sunday afternoon police responded to a downtown restaurant where a customer paid only $7 of a $15.82 bill. Officers weren’t able to identify the customer.

A 41-year-old California woman was arrested for public intoxication on Sunday evening. The woman blew .26% after some witnesses told officers that the woman seemed lost and might need help.

Police cited a 20-year-old Florida woman for shoplifting on Sunday night after employees of a downtown business detained her after she stole some rings. Police collected the stolen jewelry.

A 31-year-old Missouri man was arrested for public intoxication Thursday night after someone called police to check on him because he had been outside a liquor store for hours waiting on a ride. The man was drinking while he waited, they said.

Police are investigating a report of public indecency that was made the night of Aug. 5. The reporting party said a man was behaving inappropriately during a massage, “rubbing himself and asking for sex.” Officers have the man’s name but said they just “intend on having a conversation with him about his behavior.”

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