Intoxicated partiers keep Nelson police busy Satuday morning

First police were called to a house party, then a downtown event

A small house party in Uphill took a turn for the worse when hosts tried to remove an overly intoxicated guest early Saturday morning.

Nelson Police were called to the residence at 1:45 a.m. when the young man attempted to break back into the home.

Police took the man into custody to be lodged in a police cell until he sobered up. In the process, they found some marijuana in his pockets and discovered he was bound by numerous conditions from another jurisdiction that forbid him from consuming alcohol and required he be in his home by a certain time.

He was released later that day, but will have to appear in Nelson courts to answer to charges of possession of a controlled substance, mischief to property, and breaching release conditions.

 

Later that same morning, Nelson Police were called for a noise complaint in the 600-block of Baker Street.

At about 2:45 a.m. officers entered the downtown facility and discovered several violations of the liquor permit that had been issued for an earlier event.

The 40-year-old party host was sanctioned under the Liquor Control and Licensing Act for failing to clear patron out in time and allowing patrons to consume after the event closed.
