Alcohol equals work for Masset RCMP

  • May. 30, 2012 7:00 p.m.

Masset RCMP were busy the week of May 21-28 with several calls involving excessive alcohol consumption, says Sgt. Blake Ward. Four men were arrested for being intoxicated in a public place in four different incidents, Sgt. Ward said. Two of the men were so severely intoxicated that BC Ambulance had to be called to assist. Police encountered several other intoxicated people during patrols, who were released to sober individuals able to care for them. A house party on May 22 resulted in another man being treated by BC Ambulance and two men being arrested for assault, he said. Both men were held and released when sober without charges. Police received a report of an impaired driver the evening of May 22 that involved a hit and run motor vehicle accident. The suspected vehicle was located and the female driver was taken into custody and subsequently released to face charges of impaired driving. Complaints of an erratic driver resulsted in a second impaired driving investigation on May 23. Police located the vehicle and took the 45-year-old driver into custody for investigation of impaired driving. The driver was later found to be breaching a condition on a conditional sentence order, and was remanded into custody until June 12 to face impaired driving and breach charges. Three separate incidents involving domestic violence were reported, two of which involved alcohol, Sgt. Ward said. Charges of mischief and assault were recommended for a man and a woman after an incident May 23. On May 24, a man was taken into custody after a report of domestic violence in which no alcohol was involved. The 33-year-old man was charged with assault and due to a previous incident, was later released with strict conditions to stay in Prince Rupert and not to be in the Masset area except for court.
