Yes, there’s been a noticeable improvement in the police reports lately as, apparently, unseasonably warm weather and the lack of snow have compelled some of the citizenry to behave as though it’s summertime, out and about in the wee hours of the morning after imbibing too much. Even the reports that are not alcohol-related are quite entertaining, such as the first two items in the list, and I didn’t know that law enforcement officials could track down a stolen iPhone as easily as described in the fifth item below.
- A man said his computer is being attacked from a wireless router. This has never happened to him before and he is visiting Bozeman. He said it is ruining his vacation.
- The driver of a compact car traveling slowly near Gallatin and Little Bear roads wouldn’t pull over so others could pass. The driver would also speed up in areas where other drivers had a chance to pass, keeping them from passing.
- A drunken man threw a pint glass at a bartender at a Main Street bar and then ran away.
- A drunken man was seen at the intersection of South Grand Avenue and West Alderson Street, lying in the street with his head in front of a vehicle’s driver’s side tire around 6 a.m. The man was taken to the hospital.
- Police tracked down a jacket, purse and iPhone stolen from a woman at Bar IX using her iPhone’s tracking software. The items were found in the bathroom with $20 missing from the wallet.
