"5:28 p.m. Officers were called to a report of a drunken man refusing to leave a business in the 1800 block of Central Park Drive. The man got in a car and left."

Did the "drunken man" get back in his car and leave before or after officers showed up? Anyone bother getting a plate number to turn his drunk-driving butt in to the law? Vehicle description?

As stated before, drunks are a low priority for our local PD. Now, if he was smoking pot, they would have been right on it.

He was refusing to leave, but "got in his car and left." What?

I should clarify. Someone picked the guy up before cops got there.

Was a blood test done to confirm he was not smoking pot? You guys crack me up, the majority of players in Steamboat tune it up along with drink, come on. As I said in previous postings, I will vote to legalize pot when all my fellow American pro pot people agree to shut the borders and protect the sovereignty of the USA. What else is the National Guard for? To watch us? NOT!!

We crack you up? The discusion is about the very real problem of our local PD not taking a serious stance against excessive drinking in our community, and you talk about calling out the National Gaurd to protect the soverienity of our borders? We get it See, pot made you hyperventilate and altered your mind (your words), so all pot smokers need to be thrown in jail. But where did you pull this comment out of. No one is talking about taking anyones afternoon cocktail away from them. We just don't want people out in public, or driving, when they have had too much. And to discourage that, I believe our local PD needs to enforce the laws on the books. Not trying to promote pot in this discussion, just pointing out the illogical priorities of our law enforcement officials. Basic commen sense to promote public safety.

And thanks Matt, for clearing that up. Actually thought something like the explanation that you provided was probably the case, but wanted to use this incident to saddle my own high horse. I find the exceptance of excessive drinking in our community a big problem, as demonstrated by some very tragic incidents that have happened in the recent past. As I said above, not against alcohol, per se, just the impact on the community from those who don't seem to be mature enough to know when they have had too much. Can't believe anyone would want to argue with that.

Touchy touchy hereandthere, you brought pot into the discussion which caused me to post. It's as if you know the person was drunk and had not consumed pot at any time. The reason I mention the border is because many of you use the argument that keeping pot illegal is creating the Cartels and the deaths and destruction that they bring and that people that don't support legalizing pot are to blame. Well, if you guys stand up for the sovereignty of the USA by closing the borders then I will be with you for legalizing pot. It's that simple. I find it quite telling that my statement has gone unanswered by the pro pot crowd. And the police have zero tolerance, I don't know why you blame them for a drunk who obviously is committing a crime, the Police can't be everywhere all the time especially in daylight when the frequency of DUI is minute compared to the nighttime activity.

Touchy? Just responding to your post , which did not seem to follow the theme of this particular discussion. Thanks for clarifying your point. And, I also do not believe the argument that pot's legal status has that big of an impact on the operation of foriegn drug cartels. Pretty sure that their interests are in more lucrative markets. Would even go as far as believing that most pot that I have ever come across was most likely grown in the good ole USA, by American citizens. So we agree See. Now that Palin thing, we are definitely not on the same page. But that is another subject. To reiterate, my beef is with the acceptance by our community to flagrant and excessive drinking of alcohol in our town. I actually do feel the local cops are pretty good at enforcing drunk driving laws, thank god. Not so good at enforcing public intoxication ordinances.
