Woman bites Nelson police officer

Police dealt with two people this past weekend who refused to go quietly.

A woman is facing several charges after biting a Nelson police officer during her arrest.

Late Sunday evening, police were called to a downtown home about a woman refusing to leave. When they arrived they found she was threatening other tenants and becoming “increasingly aggressive.”

She refused to leave or identify her self. Sgt. Corey Hoy said as she was arrested, she “became combative and was restrained.” She was taken to the police station where she again fought with police, allegedly biting one member in the leg.

She was held in custody for a bail hearing and faces charges of obstruction, resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer, and failing to leave a premise when requested.

‘Combative’ drunk charged

A man is expected to face charges of causing a disturbance, resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer, and being drunk in public after an incident in Nelson early Saturday.

Police were called to a fight at a local business and arrived to find a very drunk man being removed by staff. During his arrest, he became ‘combative’ and the arresting officers suffered minor injuries.

The man continued to fight at the police station and was jailed until sobering up. He was released once sober.
