Police Blotter

Officers are looking for a woman who reportedly ripped off another woman’s mask and punched her in the face. The assault was reported Saturday evening, police said. “We are working to identify the suspect and will be issuing a citation if we are able to do so,” Jackson Police Lt. Roger Schultz said.

Police are investigating a burglary at a law office. They got the call Friday afternoon. Though nothing appears to have been stolen, the suspect did $100 in damage.

At 10:47 a.m. July 29, police responded to an animal attack. A dog ran out of its owner’s front yard and bit her neighbor, police said. Although law enforcement is checking the dog’s vaccination records, they won’t be citing its owner.

Police cited two 19-year-olds from Bentonville, Arkansas, last week for trying to get into the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar with a fake ID.

Police responded to a disturbance in the Smith’s parking lot just after 10 p.m. on July 29. A drunk man was screaming about a gun and a shooting, police said. When police arrived, they didn’t find a gun on the man. He was pretty close to where he lived and with someone who could take care of him, so police let him off without any further action. But officers noticed that he was violating release orders from an earlier arrest, so they’re going to let the prosecutor’s office handle it.

A deputy stopped a 32-year-old Jackson man for both expired registration and traveling northbound at 63 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone on South Highway 89 near mile marker 133 around 8:45 p.m. Saturday. Upon making contact with the driver, the deputy noticed signs of impairment. The man did poorly on field sobriety tests and refused to take a portable breath test. The deputy arrested him for DUI. The man agreed to take a breath test at the jail and scored 0.18, Teton County Sheriff’s Sgt. Clay Platt said. The driver was cited for speeding as well as expired registration and lack of insurance.

A deputy stopped a 30-year-old Jackson man for not staying in his lane on W. Broadway near the Virginian Saloon just before 1 a.m. Sunday. In addition to driving 10 miles per hour under the 30 mph speed limit, the driver had difficulty getting his insurance out for the deputy, the sheriff’s office said. The man did poorly on field sobriety tests and refused to perform a portable breath test. The driver was taken into custody for DUI. At the jail, the man took a breath test and scored 0.19. The local man was charged for not staying in his lane and for DUI. This is his second DUI offense: He was also arrested in 2016 for DUI.

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