Police Blotter

Officers are trying to find a woman who is accused of keying someone’s car “because she didn’t like where he had parked.” The report of property destruction came in at 9:34 a.m. Sunday. Officers are doing some follow-up work to identify the woman, who will be cited or arrested depending on the amount of damage she caused.

A man tried to pay his bar tab Friday afternoon with a fake check, according to the Jackson Police Department. The 59-year-old tried to run away when the bartender realized the check was phony. “As luck would have it a witness was present that had seen the man attempt the same thing in Utah,” Lt. Roger Schultz said. “Small world.” The transient man was arrested for defrauding an innkeeper. “He has a lengthy criminal history of the same type of behavior,” Schultz said.

A 45-year-old Phoenix man urinated on the side of a taxi cab at 2:15 a.m. Saturday, police said. The man was too drunk to know where he was or how he was getting home, so he was arrested on a charge of public intoxication.

A drunk woman who officers thought was too intoxicated to care for herself was in the process of being arrested Saturday afternoon when she started kicking. Officers escaped without injury and booked the 27-year-old Bedford, Wyoming, woman for public intoxication.

A man who tried to steal sushi around 5 p.m. Saturday was detained by the restaurant’s employees, police said. Apparently the man was known for his sticky fingers and was accused of taking $175 worth of sushi. He was cited for shoplifting and banned from the property.

A drunk teenager rolled his car at 1:38 a.m. Sunday, police said. The 17-year-old was cited for speeding faster than reasonably prudent, failing to maintain lane and DUI. The teen wasn’t hurt and was released to his parents. He was the only one in the car, police said.

Officers were called to a house at 2:36 a.m. Monday because a woman said a man had urinated in her yard and then tried to get into her house. Officers followed the suspect’s tracks but couldn’t find him. “We are going to keep an eye on the victim’s house and refer her to the Community Safety Network for extra advice and assistance,” Schultz said.

A man who was supposed to be a designated driver for his friends Thursday night was pulled over at 12:20 a.m. and arrested on a charge of DUI after blowing 0.11%. The 27-year-old Happy Jack, Arizona, man might have been the most sober person in the car, but he wasn’t sober enough to be driving.

Police were called Thursday afternoon because a man wouldn’t leave a business. He was acting suspicious, they said. The 22-year-old Moose man also had a warrant out for his arrest. The man had to first be taken to the hospital because he blew a 0.323%.

A 6-year-old child was alone at a bus stop, and someone became concerned and called police. Officers gave the child a ride home. The kid had been at a friend’s house and decided to leave, and his or her parents were out searching, police said.

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.
