Park spokeswoman Jackie Skaggs tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide (http://bit.ly/LSDsuY ) that Christopher Dascoli, of Lee, Mass., reported he was hit with a large blunt object while responding to a loud party near the lodge June 7. Dascoli was hospitalized with serious injuries, but rangers determined his claims were unfounded.
He is charged with interfering with an agency operation by providing false information to law enforcement and making a false report. Skaggs says the investigation didn’t determine what caused the injuries.
Dascoli was employed by Grand Teton Lodge Company, an authorized concessionaire of the park. The company is owned by Vail Resorts.
