Friday, October 7

PARK CITY, Utah — The Summit County Sheriff Department shift report from October 7 describes an incident in which a deputy was flagged down while on patrol to investigate graffiti in the tunnel behind Basin Recreation Field House. The graffiti included racist and derogatory symbols.

The complainant reported that he runs through the table every morning and believes that the graffiti is being done early in the morning as he can smell the fumes during his runs.
