Four police calls between Jan 28 and 29 involved intoxication, while others involved assaults and a death threat.

Jan. 28:

• When a female failed a breath test for intoxication and was asked to provide a second sample, she refused and was subsequently charged with refusal and released on a promise to appear in court.

• After receiving a report that a male was driving erratically downtown, including on sidewalks, the RCMP located him and stopped the vehicle.

• An intoxicated female was found passed out near a local business and covered in blood by a passerby, but she ran off to a nearby apartment when the passerby offered to help her. Police arrived and transported her to hospital for treatment to her right hand, although she refused to provide any information about her injury.

• Police responded to a call of a male assaulting a female in the hallway of a local hotel. They attended the scene, arrested the male and released him to appear in court at a later date.

• A driver stopped by police failed a breathalizer test and provided two more samples at the detachment, both resulting in over the legal limit. The driver was released to appear in court at a later date.

• An intoxicated male was driving through a local restaurant drive-thru on his ATV. He refused to provide a breath sample to police, was arrested, and released on a promise to appear in court.

Jan. 29:

• Police attended an incident where a female was punched, slapped and had her foot stomped on by her common-law spouse.  The male was arrested and later released on an undertaking to appear in court.

• A male has been held in custody to appear in court after a female reported he had been harassing her over the past 24 hours and threatening to kill her. When police arrived at the scene, the female indicated the male had rammed his truck into her car. While being arrested, the male continued making threats to kill the female and uttered threats to police.
