Intoxicated man chased down by Nelson pedestrians and police

A 30-year-old-man was reportedly harassing and threatening customers of a downtown business.

A 30-year-old-man was held by police until sober on Saturday after it was reported he was harassing and threatening customers of a downtown business.

On March 24 at 3 p.m. staff at the convenience store on Ward St/Baker St called the Nelson Police Department to report an intoxicated male harassing and threatening customers. The man fled before the police arrived, only to return once the authorities left.

This time he was seen hitting cars as they passed by and yelling at the drivers.

The man ran away when police  approached for the second time and he was chased down by several pedestrians and the police. He was arrested without incident nearby.

The man was held until sober and released with a court date to answer to charges of causing a disturbance and resisting arrest.

He is forbidden from consuming liquor and going into the downtown area until he appears in court.
