Police Blotter: Drunk Again and Vanishing Evidence

By Christie Burns

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

3:29 a.m. Deputies responded to call about a man acting like a loud-mouthed drunk in an Evergreen neighborhood. The long-haired man, who has been arrested for previous escapades involving alcohol, a bicycle, and a Taser, was offered a ride home by deputies. He violently refused, however and threatened the officers with physical harm. The man failed to harm anyone and was taken directly to jail.

9:14 a.m. A man called in from Reserve Drive to report that someone had suspiciously let his dog out of his yard last night without permission.

9:20 a.m. An Evergreen resident called in to report a “really big” knife lying in the road. The resident claimed they were afraid to touch the knife as it may be a piece of evidence. When deputies arrived the knife was gone.

12:22 p.m. An animal warden responded to a call from the Bigrfork Elementary School to help out with a dead bat one of the kids had found on the playground. When the animal warden arrived the bat was alive. The bat was taken to the animal shelter.

2:41 p.m. Two inmates in the detention center got into a little fight because one of them was being a big bully.
