On the evening of Jan. 2o, PCPD responded to people setting off fireworks on the ski run under Town Lift off Norfolk Avenue. According to Cpt. Phil Kirk, the officer responded to the area and no one was there by the time he arrived.
Reports of parties and intoxication this week led the PCPD to respond to multiple calls for “disturbance of the peace.” Two instances of loud partying occurred in rental properties. One took place on Jan. 21 near Ontario Ave. where neighbors reported a loud hot tub party to the property manager, who then called the police. According to the report, the people “sound intoxicated and are argumentative with the neighbor.”
During the PCPD’s day shift on Jan. 22, a 78-year-old California man lost consciousness on the Carpenter Chair Lift at Deer Valley Resort, and despite CPR and other life-saving measures at the top of the lift, the man died.
On the evening of Jan. 22, the partying continued at the Park City Library field. Someone called the PCPD reporting concern over a reported 60-person gathering there with drinking involved. According to the police report, the officer spoke to 13 people. “They all had masks and appeared to be social distancing while enjoying their dogs. While in contact with the individuals, there were drinks on a card style table” according to the responding officer’s report. “It did not appear to me that these drinks were alcoholic and the male I spoke with advised they were all virgin Hot Totties,” the officer said.
Multiple arrests on Main Street this week began with a call from a bouncer at No Name Saloon Jan. 23 to PCPD, who responded and arrested a suspect for assault, intoxication, and disorderly conduct. Neighboring Main Street bar O’Shucks called upon PCPD later that week for help with “a group of patrons that were being belligerent and disorderly.” After investigating, officers arrested one of the men for loaning a fake ID to a friend to enter the bar and for being in possession of that ID. That same evening, officers responded to a domestic violence report and a suspect was booked in the Summit County Jail where, according to the PCPD report, “a white powdery substance, later identified as cocaine, was found on the suspect’s person.”
