Kalispell Police Department received several reports about loud fireworks and gunshots. One caller allegedly saw “artillery-style shells going off.”

Someone purportedly told officers they drove by a man and thought he took a pistol from his belt and pointed it at them. The person said the man had a case filed against them. Turns out, the “pistol” was a puppy in the man’s coat.

A guest reportedly heard an altercation in another room when a man said, “Do you want to see what a man can do to your face?” A crying woman responded and screamed, “Look what he did to my face.”

A man with long gray hair allegedly went to a residence three times and tried the door. The resident requested extra patrol.

Someone claimed a drunk driver was swerving in front of them and almost drove through the grass at the courthouse.

A woman was reportedly “seeing things that were not there,” when she called police, claiming people were trying to steal a neighbor’s trailer.

A vehicle was allegedly driving in the middle of the road, swerving and then stopped in the middle of the intersection.

An employee told officers someone was in the yard “messing around.”

An elderly woman called the police after someone reportedly shined a flashlight into her windows and tapped on the back door.

A woman allegedly requested law enforcement assistance because she found out her husband was cheating on her and he was trying to lock her out of the house and was following her around and yelling. He reportedly calmed down and packed his bags.

A woman complained about the neighbor above her for having loud TVs.

A woman thought someone was in her backyard. Although she couldn’t see anyone, she heard what sounded like someone scraping ice. Officers check the yard and didn’t see any signs that someone was there.

Someone complained two dogs had been barking all day long, however, when officers drove by all was quiet.

A cashier allegedly found methamphetamine at the store and didn’t know what to do with it. Officers collected the drugs and submitted it for destruction.
