Flagstaff's Great Pine Cone Drop on New Year's Eve was accompanied by a good deal of lunacy, according to the Flagstaff Sun:

Local law enforcement officers rang in the new year dealing with drunk and disorderly revelers downtown — including one Flagstaff man who kicked a police horse after being arrested.

Keith Goldtooth was charged with assaulting an officer.

Officers and deputies were also involved in a car chase that ended when an 18-year-old Flagstaff man crashed a car into an eastside trailer home and then fled the area with two passengers, ages 13 and 15.

In the hours immediately before and after the Great Pine Cone Drop at midnight, Flagstaff police officers responded to 47 calls for service in the downtown and Southside neighborhoods, officials said.
