Sheriff’s Office finishes investigation into Blacksmith Fork rage incident

LOGAN — Deputies have concluded their investigation into the threats and harassment that took place at a campsite in Blacksmith Fork Canyon over the Memorial Day weekend.

Cache County Sheriff’s Lt. Brian Locke said they have identified five adults suspected of committing criminal charges.  Evidence has been turned over to the Cache County Attorney’s office to determine whether charges will be filed or not.

The altercation began May 25 when the Caballero family, from Box Elder County, had vehicle trouble while towing a trailer in Blacksmith Fork Canyon.  They found a pull out where they called for help to tow their disabled truck and their camper.

The Caballeros happened to be in a spot on public land where Wyatt Pack, a 20-year-old Weber County resident, and his group had already placed their trailer, ahead of a planned Memorial Day camping trip. As the family waited for help, Pack’s group arrived at the campsite.

A video shows Pack yelling at the Caballeros and demanding they move their truck. He is seen berating the family, at one point asking if the father is deaf and demanding he move the truck immediately. He swears repeatedly and at one point says he will move the truck for $40.

Pack eventually tows the disabled truck down the canyon and a friend arrived to tow the trailer away from the campsite. The 11-minute video from the campsite was posted online and has been shared thousands of times.
