Police Blotter

Kids gone wild: Officers confiscated an array of controlled substances from middle school students last week. Police cited some students and alerted parents and are investigating.

Loaded: A man was pulled over for running a red light, and officers found four marijuana vape pens and leafy marijuana in his car. The Vermont man also admitted to drinking before driving. He was arrested on charges of DUI and possession of a controlled substance.

It’s still missing bike season: A man’s $2,000 mountain bike was stolen out of his front yard, police said.

Whiskey blues: A 59-year-old Star Valley Ranch man was arrested on a DUI charge Thursday. Someone called him in after he crossed over the centerline several times. He admitted to drinking two “travel sized bottles of whiskey” and an unknown amount of beers before that. He was arrested on a charge of DUI.

Femme fatale: Police said a woman beat up a man over the weekend after leaving the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar. At first there was confusion as to who started the fight, Jackson Police Lt. Roger Schultz said, but surveillance video from Pizzeria Caldera confirmed the woman started punching a man, who she said had been an a--hole to her while they were in the bar. The attack escalated, and when officers arrived, the woman’s male friend had also started punching the alleged a--hole. They were all cited for battery.

Two guns, no shots: A man said he was walking back to his hotel room at 2:30 a.m. Saturday when three men jumped him. They were punching and kicking him while he was on the ground, he told police, and then, he said, one of them threatened to shoot and kill him. The man did not call police. Instead he went to his hotel room and grabbed his AR-15 rifle and went back for the guys. Someone saw the man and his large gun and called police. The 25-year-old’s face was bleeding and bruised, police said, but the men who allegedly beat him up were nowhere to be found.

Lewd vandalism: Some penis graffiti was drawn on a car that was parked at Albertsons, police said. The bumper was also damaged.

Missing or incarcerated? Someone called police because their roommate was missing. Turns out he was in jail in Big Horn County.
