Someone called the Kalispell Police Department to report three men allegedly beat a fourth man who they locked in an office. They weren’t sure if the bloodied man whose face and lips were swollen needed an ambulance. All of the men had been drinking. Parties were separated and statements were collected.

A property management employee said law enforcement assisted him in evicting a tenant and when he checked the property, he found paper shoved into one of the heating vents with the heat jacked up to 90 degrees.

A woman called the police when a man she had said “Hi” to earlier in the day while taking the garbage out started knocking on her back patio door. He was moved along. The man allegedly had in his possession a cream-colored guitar case that had been reported stolen.

A woman’s accident vehicle alarm went off and she reportedly told officers she was not wearing her glasses, miscalculated a turn into a parking lot and ran into a crosswalk signal, which was found lying on the ground. Thankfully, no injuries were reported.

Someone allegedly hit a street light.

A teen allegedly thought a man in his 20s wearing an orange hoodie left drugs at a playground where he was waiting around acting suspiciously. The teen called officers back when the man left vomiting along the way.

A woman reportedly found a man covered with a gray tarp sitting on her porch on her way to work. She said he had been there last night and wanted officers to contact her about the situation.

Screams heard coming from Lawrence Park turned out to be people having fun and not a disturbance. One female said she tripped and fell.

Another loud group of people were having a different kind of fun when someone complained four to five men were out drinking and throwing things off a hotel balcony and “talking offensively” to other guests. When officers arrived the men were not being loud but were advised to keep it down.

A tenant reportedly vacated a house and locked it up and the owner didn’t have any way to get inside.

A group of six or seven people walking around a location and allegedly looking into vehicles near a gas station made someone suspicious of their inventions.
