City police have been busy in the last few days.

Nelson family dispute turns into rage

Police responded to a collision Saturday in which a vehicle drove off the roadway and then collided with a bridge guardrail.

A 26-year-old female is in the hospital under the Mental Health Act following an incident that occurred on January 20 at 4:48 p.m.

Nelson police responded to a suspicious circumstances call at a residence in the Fairview area of Nelson.

Upon arrival, police determined that the incident was primarily a family despite involving damage to property.

During the investigation a female, who had fled the scene prior to police’s arrival, returned to the residence in a violent rage.

It is reported that the female then drove her vehicle wildly over sidewalks in an attempt to strike another occupant of the residence and ultimately colliding with two other vehicles, disabling her own. She then directed her focus to a police officer threatening to kill him.

The officer attempted to restrain the woman with some struggle and after receiving support from another officer, she was taken into custody and later to the hospital for evaluation. She remains under the doctor’s care.
