A Dozen DUIs, Downtown Stabbing Mar Boise's New Year's Eve

Posted By on Tue, Jan 1, 2013 at 10:30 AM

At least 12 men and women spent their first hours of 2013 behind bars at the Ada County lockup.

Boise and Garden City police arrested a dozen individuals on a charge of driving under the influence early this morning.

More New Year's morning arrests included assault, domestic battery, injury to a child and illegal posession of drugs without a prescription.

Two more men were charged with the purchase or serving of alcoholic beverages to a minor

But Boise Police said the worst of it was at Jefferson Street, in front of the Idaho Capitol Building, where two people were rushed to the hospital following a stabbing at approximately 1:45 a.m.

When police arrived on the scene, they found two males who said they were injured by a sharp weapon during a fight with two other men. Police said one of the victims had "what appeared to be serious injuries."

According to the two men, a verbal altercation among the four men had taken place just prior to the stabbing in the area of Eighth and Bannock streets. The victims told police a foot chase among the four men took them to the Capitol, where the physical fight began.

Police are on the lookout for two suspects. One is a light-skinned male wearing a black beanie-style hat and a dark hoodie jacket. The other male was described as a light-skined adult with an average build.

With very little to work on, given the descriptions, Boise Police are hoping that downtown party-goers may have witnessed the altercation. They're urged to call Crime Stoppers at 208-343-COPS.
