Nelson police are reporting two very different cases related to drunken behavior in recent days.
On Thursday they got a call about an intoxicated and uncooperative woman at a residence. She agreed to leave and asked to be taken to hospital. But further investigation led to charges of fraud and possession of stolen property.
The woman is also sought by Castlegar RCMP so she’s being held in custody.
And on Friday morning NPD were called to a vehicle where a woman was slumped over the driver’s seat.
They couldn’t wake her so took her to hospital. It turns out she was intoxicated and under the influence of drugs.
She was issued a driving suspension and her vehicle was towed.
