A woman on Parkwood Lane in Bigfork reportedly called deputies from a neighbor’s phone and asked for help after she locked herself out of the house. She told deputies she was not dressed for the weather, didn’t have shoes on and did not have access to her phone, which contained phone numbers for friends and family. She was given a ride to get spare keys from another location.

Five dogs were chasing a fawn on Fifth Avenue in Kalispell.

Two men and a woman were drinking, being verbally aggressive and refusing to leave a Nucleus Avenue establishment. The trio finally made their way to the backdoor, however, they kept going in and out and trying to start fights.
