Heat, booze, trespassing and skinny dip interruptus
First Published Jul 10 2012 10:14 am • Last Updated Oct 30 2012 11:31 pm

Sure, it’s been hot. But Cottonwood Heights police say that’s still no reason to skinny dip in the middle of the night at a closed swimming pool.

Cottonwood Heights police Sgt. Gary Young said alcohol may have been the decisive factor, however, in a couple’s decision to ignore "No Trespassing" signs and scale a fence early Tuesday morning to plunge into the closed pool at Crestwood Park, about 1600 East and 7300 South.

Police routinely patrol the park due to past trespassing incidents, but usually the offenders are at least partially clothed. Just before 1 a.m. Tuesday, however, an officer investigating a suspicious vehicle found parked near the pool caught the offenders in wet — and in the buff.

After initially denying they had been drinking, subsequent blood-alcohol content testing showed the Sandy couple were at 0.30, or more than three times the legal limit to drive of 0.08. The man, 21, was cited for trespassing and the female, under the legal drinking age, was cited for trespassing and being a minor consuming alcohol.
