An intoxicated house guest kept Nelson Polices busy last week. On March 2, at about 3 p.m., a 911 call came in about a man causing issues in a home.

Police arrived and identified the man as a 60 year old local person who had been released from jail earlier in the day for similar issues.  He was held until sober and will appear in court in Nelson in April to answer to charges of failing to comply with his release conditions.


On March 4, a Nelson police officer walking the beat observed two males sitting in a vehicle in a parking lot in the 300 block of Hall Street. The officer noted the driver holding a large marijuana “bong”.  The passenger was holding a box with a small amount of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia inside.

Both were arrested and the incident investigated further.  As both males were cooperative, appeared to have made a poor decision and have no other history of this type of behavior they were not charged for the possession of a controlled substance. The drugs and equipment were surrendered for destruction.



On March 5 at 3 a.m., Nelson police members noted a person trying to help an intoxicated female down Baker Street. They stepped in for the Good Samaritan and tried to help the 36 year old female in getting home safely. She became increasing hostile and would not assist the members in getting her to a safe place.  After numerous attempts to get her home and to someone she knew to care for her failed, she was lodged into NPD cells for her own safety until able to care for herself. She was released in the morning and charged under the Liquor Control and Licensing Act for public intoxication.
