"Police Incidents" in Bozeman, Montana

Bozeman is a charming city with roughly 40,000 people. It is a "green", low crime city.   Here are some facts about recent "incidents" from the Bozeman police reports.  This town has a safer feel to it than my LA.

Read through this list. I didn't make this stuff up and it is pretty funny.

  • Eight people were warned for having open containers of alcohol between 1:24 a.m. and 2:10 a.m. on or near Main Street.
  • Four people were either warned or cited for urinating in public between 1:12 a.m. and 2 a.m.
  • A man was seen trying to get hit by traffic at 2 a.m. on 19th Avenue. He was gone before officers arrived.
  • A person was cited for being an intoxicated pedestrian and underage drinking after being found passed out on Seventh Avenue.
