Downtown Bar Report — July 1-31

It has been awhile since we've had a Downtown Coeur d'Alene Bar Report. So this may seem dated (from 4th of July). But it's still interesting (since it happened in the SR parking lot): "Officers arrested an 18YO female for Domestic Battery after a dispute between her boyfriend (bisexual) and her boyfriend’s boyfriend (homosexual). The battery incident occurred after the fireworks display in the Spokesman Review parking lot. Apparently the three were discussing sexual preferences, and the female, who was intoxicated, was not happy about the situation – slapping her boyfriend’s face (victim stated it was like a 'bitch slap'). When officers arrived, everyone was in tears and once it was determined the male and female were in a domestic relationship, she was arrested for domestic battery. Her boyfriend was later charged with Malicious Injury to Property after it was discovered he had stolen a “handicap” sign from the parking lot area (sign was found in his car)."

Bar Report: Just Wanted Some Coke

In the latest Downtown Coeur d'Alene Bar Report we're introduced to a possible purse thieft accused of stealing a purse of a 30-year-old dancer while she was on stage at the Rendezvouz. It happened Monday, May 21. Here's the rest of the report: "While she was on the stage dancing, a male sat down next to where she had left her purse, wrapped the purse in his jacket and left out the front door. The victim tried to chase the male, but could not keep up with him because of her heels. She did point the male out to the bar bouncer who was also unable to stop the male. The male was recognized by others in the bar and when the officers contacted him by phone, he denied taking the purse stating he was at the bar trying to score some cocaine but did not steal anything. This case is still under investigation." You can read the entire Bar Report here.

Question: Ah, what's worse — stealing a purse or trying to "score some cocaine"?

Drunks: Bare Butt & A Zebra Purse

Dunno which Downtown Coeur d'Alene drunk from September amuses me more — The man who was walking south in the crosswalk @ 4th & Sherman with his butt exposed (to moon friends who were behind him)? Or the 25YO woman in a pink blouse, carrying a zebra-striped purse who spit in a bouncer's face at the Beacon after she was denied entry into the bar and had flipped the bouncer off. According to the latest Downtown Coeur d'Alene Bar Report, the bouncer may have inadvertently triggered the incident by joking about the woman's pink blouse and bouncing her from the bar because he recognized her as a friend of a friend. The woman later changed her blouse from pink to black (because she didn't want people looking for the girl with the pink shire and zebra-striped purse. The bounced woman said she was trying to spit on the Beacon window rather than the bouncer. You can read the downtown bar report here.

Downtown Bar Report — For March

The Downtown Bar Report for the month of March has several interesting entries including one from 10:58 p.m. Saturday, March 5, in which a Baja Bargarita patron became disoriented while driving near the Coeur d'Alene Resort: "Officers responded to a call of a possible DUI and vehicle stuck in a snow berm in front of the
CDA Resort. Notably, the vehicle was primarily on the sidewalk. Apparently the driver thought the snow berm was a roadway divider and proceeded to drive upon the sidewalk. When he realized he wasn’t driving on the roadway, he attempted to cross “over” the berm and became stuck. The driver, a 24 year old male, was arrested for DUI (BAC = .125). He told officers he had a few drinks at the Baja Bargarita earlier in the evening." You can read the full report here.

Question: Have you ever thought a snow berm was a road way divider?
