Man pepper sprayed

  • Sep. 1, 2006 5:00 p.m.

Three fights outside of Mile Zero Pub over the weekend resulted in one man being pepper-sprayed by police.
Constable John Johnson said the fights are taking place after the bar closes. Five people were arrested in these incidents in the early morning hours of Aug. 26 and 27.
On Aug. 26 two men were involved in a bloody fight. When asked by an officer to break it up, one man put his hands down, and the other took a swing at the first.
After the second man punched the first for the second time, the officer sprayed the assailant to prevent further injuries.
He said these incidents can be avoided. “Take your intoxicated friends home and take care of them.”
None of the fights resulted in hospitalization.
In other news, police received a report of an injured bear hiding in the woods and watching people on Aug. 25.
Constable Johnson said the bear was hit by a truck. The conservation officer was called and a trap was to be set. He received no other calls on the incident. The conservation officer could not be reached by deadline.
