A Christmas party in Uphill turned into quite a headache for Nelson Police as the department was call to respond to the residence no less than three times in the early hours of Saturday (December 22).

At approximately 2:23 a.m., Nelson Police were requested to attend the Uphill residence after receiving a complaint of noise.

The primary resident was handed a verbal warning.

However, an hour later police were right back at the residence as noise levels continued to disturb the neighbouring houses on the block.

During the second appearance, police witnessed a vehicle lose control attempting to negotiate a turn under poor road conditions.

The vehicle collided with a snow bank and came to rest partially in the yard of the residence in question.

Police observed the driver, displaying symptoms of alcohol intoxication, attempt to free the vehicle before exiting and departing quickly on foot.

The driver, subsequently arrested a short distance away, was issued with a driving prohibition.

While at the scene of the house party, a party-goer struck to of the attending officers with snow balls.

The individual was identified and arrested for being intoxicated in a public place without further incident.

The individual was released from police custody when sober and issued with a violation ticket for the offence.

The house party was one of 60 calls during the four days leading up to Christmas Day.
