Not a lot happening from yesterday. We had a few more found properties we won’t elaborate on, but it’s weird to get that many at once. It’s like everyone lost their mind all at the same time. It happens.
We’ve been trying to standardize the blotter photo, so you know what’s coming at you. We can’t always find something that corresponds with something in the blotter, so we use random photos that are, "Police-y." Is that a word? We also want to vary it up, so one day’s blotter won’t get confused with another, even though they’re labeled. That’s a lot of work to find and modify photos for our use, but we want to give you some eye candy to go along with the printed material. We hope you enjoy.

20011371: On January 14, 2020, at about 8:21 p.m., Sgt. Kellams responded to the Virginian Saloon for a report of an intoxicated man trying to fight people and who was refusing to leave. If you’ve followed our blotter long enough, you’ll know this is a common theme and that the over consumption of alcohol tends to make some people aggressive and angry. Not at all cool for those who are just trying to unwind after work and hang out with friends. Sgt. Kellams arrived and located the man to determine what the issue was. Because of the nature of the call, Cpl. Traphagan responded as backup, (it’s always good to travel in pairs when dealing with aggressive, intoxicated people). In this case, the intoxicated man took one look at Cpl. Traphagan and told him he looked like an, "Assault Vehicle." What does that even mean? Maybe it’s a compliment but we’re not sure. Regardless, Sgt. Kellams found him to be so intoxicated he arrested the 34 year old Jackson, WY man for Public Intoxication. After arrest, they attempted to search him and he became even more angry and aggressive, swinging his legs around to prevent them from searching him. This is why we bring two officers to situations like this. Even handcuffed, an uncooperative person can be a handful. Sgt. Kellams and Cpl. Traphagan kept their cool, though, and were able to get the man searched and transported to the jail without anyone getting hurt.
Enjoy you Wednesday, Jackson!
