www.LovellChronicle.com June 9, 2011 I The Lovell Chronicle I 5 LPD enforces underage drinking party law BY BRAD DEVEREAUX The Lovell Police De- partment had a chance to enforce WS 6-4-406 - per- mitting house parties where minors are present -- this week after receiving a report of underage drink- ing going on at a Lovell res- idence. Chief of Police Nick Lewis said this is the first time the LPD has enforced the relatively new statute. He said it could be used to write a citation to anyone in control of a home while minors are at the home drinking alcoholic bever- ages. The citation carries a fine of up to $750, impris- onment up to six months, or both. This week, a Lovell woman was cited for per- mitting a house party where minors are pres- ent, and three minors were written MIP citations. Lewis said the law does not pin the blame on the owner of the property, but instead whoever is in con- trol of the property at the time of the underage drink- ing. Age doesn't matter ei- ther, Lewis said, and a mi- nor can be cited as long as he or she is in control of the building, such as gaining access with a set of keys or inviting friends over while parents are away. Lewis said it can be tough to find out about un- derage drinking parties, but officers can make con- tact based on a noise com- plaint, improperly parked vehicles or other offenses that lead to the discovery of underage drinking. "In the past, underage drinking has been safe at a house," Lewis said. "But driving home is the danger- ous part. I have to stress how lethal it could be. The state created this law to keep people safe." Powell FD offers extrication demonstration A vehicle extricition demonstration will take place this Saturday, June 11, at 10 a.m. at the Pew- ell Fire Department, locat- ed at 1101 E. South Street. The demonstration will be taking place in conjunction with a live training session by local fire fighters. The public is invited. Those in attendance will watch as members of the fire department use the Jaws of Life, hydraulic res- cue tools used to extricate trapped drivers and pas- sengers in a vehicle acci- dent. Typically, roofs and doors of a donated wrecked vehicle are forcefully re- moved. Powell Fire Depart- ment's Cory Baker sched- uled this educational ex- perience to coincide with the driver education class currently being of- fered through Powell Val- ley Community Education BOCES. Current and past driver education students are welcome to attend, as well as anyone from the general public. There is no charge. Disturber falls asleep, gets arrested The Big Horn County Sheriffs Department re- ceived the following calls for the week of May 30-June 6, 2011: May 30: Deputies received a report from a landowner claiming that a vehicle was stuck in the mud on his property, and had to pass two "no trespassing" signs to get to the spot. Deputies responded to find the ve- hicle owner attempting to get unstuck. They warned him not to trespass in the future and the landowner agreed to let the motor- ist come back for the truck once the mud dried. June 4: Kempton Roger Fitzherbert, 19, turned himself in for an outstand- ing Big Horn County war- rant. June 5: Deputies responded to a location in Byron after 2 a.m. for a report of a do- mestic dispute in progress. A subject at the scene was reportedly destroying items in the home and threaten- ing family members. Offi- cers responded and arrest- ed Yanci Eugene Sabin, 27, who was asleep on the couch at the time of the deputies' arrival, and transported him to jail in Basin. Driving, walking under the influence The Lovell Police De- partment received the fol- lowing calls for the week of May 31-June 2, 2011: May 31: Officers wrote three MIP citations to mi- nors drinking at a home in Lovell. The party host was given a citation for con- tributing alcohol to a mi- nor. June 1: Officers arrested John Delmer Nation, 56, for DUI and transported him to jail in Basin. June 2: Officers wrote a citation for being an in- toxicated pedestrian on a roadway and transported the individual to the Big Horn County Jail for the night after the man re- quested being taken to jail. ,r Officers talked to a man who was asking what the consequences would be if he were to shoot a boxer dog that was wan- dering around in the street. Officers advised that shooting the dog would be illegal. The Animal Control Offi- cer was dispatched and warned the dog's owner to keep it chained up. June 4: Officers assisted a Lovell resident by deliv- ering some cat traps af- ter she reported that local cats were eating the pet fish in her pond.

The order ap- proving plea agreement was filed in the Fifth Judicial Circuit Court in Big Horn County on May 25. Just a reminder, always call before you dig.
