Police say a 23-year-old visitor to Nelson was arrested early Thursday after biting a staff member at a Nelson bar. Officers responded to a call for help with an “unruly” customer who was trying to get back into the place.

“Members and bar staff worked together to safely remove her from the area,” the release said, adding that her friends tried to interfere, but dispersed without further incident. The woman was held in jail until she sobered up and will be in court on a charge of assault causing bodily harm and trying to re-enter a bar after being removed.

Police didn’t say how badly the injured the victim was.
