Law roundup: Dog knows 'sit' command too well

| April 2, 2021 12:00 AM

A Martin City resident complained to the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office because their neighbor’s dog apparently sits on their vehicles at night. When the owner of the vehicles confronted their neighbor, the dog owner apparently told them to “move out of the area.” The dog owner said the dog’s behavior was a result of it going into heat, so the owner promised to get the dog neutered.

Three horses were running loose in Kalispell, but eventually they all returned home.

A man said he was “freezing” after being kicked out of his house. He told the Sheriff’s Office he wanted to go home to his parents’ house, but he hadn’t called them and he didn’t know where he was. Luckily, it was noted the caller was “wearing clothes.”

Another person who was kicked out of the house called because she wanted to get her mail. She was advised to contact her mother and was told “this is not a law enforcement issue.”

Someone who lives on Third Avenue called the Columbia Falls Police Department to give them a “heads up” that his neighbor “is crazy.” During an incident the night before the call, the neighbor apparently threatened to sue the caller and the police department.

A driver on Sixth Avenue in Columbia Falls was cited for a stop sign violation.

A woman said her intoxicated boyfriend threw her out of his truck and smashed her phone, but she decided she didn’t need law enforcement assistance.
