3:43 p.m. A snowmobile was stolen near the back side of Big Mountain.

3:56 p.m. The unwelcome boyfriend of a Marion resident’s stepdaughter showed up at her house intoxicated. He was urged to leave, but refused. He eventually left and was pulled over for trespassing and driving under the influence of alcohol.

5:55 p.m. A man and his ex-wife got into a fight in Bigfork. Everything was settled and the two went their separate ways.

7:39 p.m. A chimney fire on Sleepy Hollow Drive was put out in about 40 minutes by the Evergreen Fire Department.

7:39 p.m. A man in Whitefish called in because he has been receiving nasty phone calls from a man he doesn’t know.

11:15 p.m. The Sheriff’s Department received a call from a young man in Missoula explaining that he had just received a text from a friend in Evergreen who was threatening to harm himself. Deputies checked on the man and found he was to be OK.

The departments responded to 115 calls for service.
