In the last few days police have responded to a vehicle fire

Nelson police blotter: ex-boyfriend kneed in groin

A 33-year-old woman faces an assault charge after allegedly kneeing her ex-boyfriend in the groin Friday afternoon.

Nelson police say a 33-year-old woman faces an assault charge after allegedly kneeing her ex-boyfriend in the groin in the 500 block of Ward Street on Friday afternoon.

As he tried to escape to the nearby shelter, her new boyfriend tried to kick him as well. Both then ran off. Two days later, the woman, while drunk, came to the police office looking for her new boyfriend, believing him to be in custody. She was arrested and will appear in court October 23. The other man hasn’t been located.

Man falls over railing

A man fell over a railing and into a parking lot in the 600 block of Vernon Street around 3 a.m. Friday.

Police received a 911 call that the dispatcher said was hard to understand because the caller sounded drunk. Police traced the cell phone call, and found a half-finished can of beer on the sidewalk. They searched the area and found the man below.

He was taken to Kootenay Lake hospital by ambulance.

Vehicle fire extinguished

Hopefully it’s under warranty: on Saturday, police say a man was driving his recently repaired car on Vernon Street. When he stopped at Hall Street, a man sitting in a nearby bar noticed the car was on fire and ran out to warn the driver.

Police and fire crews attended. The fire was put out and the vehicle removed safely. No one was hurt.
