By Beacon Staff

The Kalispell Police and Flathead County Sheriff’s reports for Tuesday included the following:

8:08 a.m A Kalispell man was heard yelling.

8:12 a.m. A woman found a board with nails sticking out of it hidden under the snow in her driveway.

9:25 a.m. A man who owns a porta-potty business called in to report that numerous porta-potties have been damaged by sparkler bombs. He wants to know how he can make the bombing stop.

9:56 a.m. Someone called in because they saw an old man driving all over the road.

11:56 a.m. A man called the Sheriff’s Department after he bought a blind snake from a woman. He claimed that the woman was housing 200 cats, birds that were losing their feathers and the snake, which was not only blind but had been scratched by cats. An animal warden checked out the residence and saw what looked like 20 cats and nine dogs.

12:29 p.m. Copper was stolen from the Bonneville substation in Columbia Falls.

12:55 p.m. A 2-year-old called 911. There was no emergency.

3:56 p.m. An Angel Point man drove his excavator into a tree.

7:08 p.m. A Whitefish man called in because his friend beat him up. His friend had invited him over for dinner, but while there the man brushed up against his friend in the kitchen and apparently angered him.

10:22 p.m. A woman called 911 because she and her boyfriend were arguing. However, she hung up before the call went through – most likely because she remembered she had an outstanding warrant. She was advised to take care of that.

2:46 a.m. An extremely drunken girl called in to say that her puppy was dying.

The departments responded to 145 calls for service.
