Law roundup: Tacos with a side of knives

A spectacle unfolded for a customer and their mom while waiting in a drive-thru line. Three men allegedly got out of a maroon vehicle, and two of them pulled knives on yet another man who got out of a silver vehicle and also pulled out a knife. The two men reportedly started chasing one around the parking lot and tried to leave in the silver vehicle. The Kalispell Police Department may have detained up to five people.

A woman walking a puppy behind baseball fields reportedly had a bad interaction with a woman who had a large dog off-leash when she "grabbed her around the collar and cussed her out" over the weekend. The puppy owner wanted to speak to an officer about the woman laying her hands on her and was aware that calling at the time of the incident may have been a more timely option. She was advised animal control would also be made aware of the dog being off-leash.

Officers received a report that an office employee was "having difficulty removing a man from his sliding glass door." The employee said their manager also wanted to speak to officers.

A man was disturbed by people parking out front and although they weren't on his property he didn't want them there and thought "there could be trouble."

A woman wearing a white dress with yellow flowers was reportedly in a parking lot and had earlier been called in for going through people's vehicles. A manager requested she be cited for trespassing.

Two men appeared to be checking car doors before one left in a beat-up blue truck and the other walked away.

A woman told police she was nearly hit by a half-ton truck being driven by a woman while crossing the street.

A woman calling from Woodland Drive told the Flathead County Sheriff's Office she was older and reportedly couldn't deal with a cat she rescued the previous day and wanted someone to take it because she was unable to transport it anywhere.

Someone allegedly kept bringing out a ladder to unscrew a neighbor's security light that was shining in their window on Panoramic Drive. Both parties were given some bright ideas on how to resolve the issue.

Someone reportedly drilled a hole in the gas tank of a person's vehicle while they were out on a trail.

The driver of an SUV allegedly took a wrong turn on the way to visit a friend and ended up getting stuck in a field on a man's U.S. 93 property in Whitefish. The property owner confronted the driver who said he had someone coming to pull him out, but the owner didn't want him to leave because there were already ruts and they didn't want more damage. The parties involved came to an agreement about fixing the damage when the ground dried.
