The Nelson Police Department had a busy five-day stretch ending Sunday, handling more than 90 calls.

On Thursday afternoon at 2 p.m., officers arrested a male after he allegedly broke down a door of an Uphill residence in a drunken rage. The 33-year-old of no fixed address was apparently attempting to gather his personal belongs that he left at a friend’s house. He was charged with mischief under $5,000 and released with a promise to appear in court in September.

On Thursday evening the department’s park patrol issued two violation tickets to a pair of youths for possession of liquor. One of the youths was nabbed in Gyro Park and the other Cottonwood Falls Park. Each ticket carries a fine of $230 under the Liquor Control and Licensing Act. All parks in the City of Nelson are routinely patrolled throughout the summer at all hours of the day and night.

Early Saturday morning at 1:30 a.m., officers received a 911 call reporting an intoxicated 15-year-old male passed out in the laneway in the 600 block of Herridge Lane. Police and Nelson Fire and Rescue members attended the scene. Police are thanking the two Nelson citizens for assisting the male prior to police attendance, for assisting Nelson Fire on scene with treating the young male and also for locating the parents of the teenager. The male was transported by his parents to the Kootenay Lake Hospital for further assessment.
