Police Blotter

A crime for a crime: A man was arrested last week, and police towed his parents’ car, which he had been driving. When the man was released from jail, police said, he cut the fence open at the Flat Creek Towing impound lot and stole back the vehicle. Now he’s wanted for destruction.

Wasted steak: A drunken man who had a 14-ounce rib-eye steak, a baked potato and two whiskeys at the White Buffalo Club on Sunday night left the hotel restaurant without paying his $84 bill. The 41-year-old was telling other customers that he was the owner of the business and he was upset over something. When police started to arrest the Jackson man outside he vomited on the street. He was charged with defrauding an innkeeper.

Three’s company: Police were called at 1:30 a.m. Sunday to Pinky G’s to take care of some unruly customers who were refusing to leave. One of the men pushed an employee, police said, so the 22-year-old from Victor, Idaho, was arrested for public intoxication. While that man was being arrested, police said, his friends began interfering. Officers asked them to step back, but they continued to try to get between police and the defendant. Police ended up arresting three additional people for interference: a 25-year-old Jackson man, a 21-year-old Massachusetts woman and a 23-year-old Arizona woman.

Two-night stay: A man was arrested twice over the weekend for being drunk in public. The transient was arrested Saturday at Cache and Deloney because police found him so drunk that he didn’t know where he was. On Sunday the 57-year-old was arrested again when he was found walking on Highway 22 after dark. He was shouting derogatory names at the deputies during his arrest, records stated.

Overstayed his welcome: Staff at The Rose asked a man to leave 20 times before calling police a little before midnight Thursday. The 26-year-old was being rude to employees, police said. The man was very drunk (0.32%) and was arrested for public intoxication.

Will beg for beer: A woman called police Thursday afternoon because a man approached her car and asked her for beer. The man was loitering outside Eleanor’s and asking various people to buy him alcohol, she reported. The 35-year-old Oregon man was arrested for breach of peace and possession for the marijuana the police found on him.

Florida man strikes again: Police arrested a 30-year-old Florida man after he smoked an electronic cigarette inside the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar. He was so drunk that police had to hold him up, reports stated. He was arrested for public intoxication.

Every single one alcohol related. As is 40% of all crimes. And everyone is losing their brains over vaping pens. Nero fiddles, the saying goes.

Yep. What efforts are being made to stop the over-serving? And by the way, no way that man's check at WBC was only $84. Probably $184. I love the place, but cheap it isn't.
