9:08 a.m. A hysterical Kalispell woman called in after her neighbor threatened to spray Roundup.

10:08 a.m. On Tuesday night an intoxicated man called in from the Blue Moon saloon to report a stolen vehicle. Responding deputies gave the man a ride home and later found his Dodge Caravan parked nearby on Half-Moon Road. The same drunken man called in a second time the next night to report that his vehicle had been stolen from the bar once again. And again, deputies found the vehicle parked a couple hundred yards down the road on U.S. Highway 2.

11:10 p.m. Someone called in to report that his car window had been shot out with a pellet gun as he was driving over the viaduct near Columbia Falls.

4:30 a.m. Deputies gave a transient a ride back to his camp after he was causing a bit of a disturbance at the mobile home park on Shady Lane. Later, however, the aggressive transient was arrested for disorderly conduct after attempting to punch moving vehicles.
