Nelson police used a tip from an employee at a local fast-food establishment to take a drunk driver off the road during the weekend.

Police charged a driver with a 90-day driving prohibition and impounded the vehicle for 30 days after an incident Friday (January 4) at the Nelson A&W.

NPD was aided by the staff who noticed a customer at the drive-through window appearing to be under the influence of alcohol.

When police arrived the 39-year-old local man failed two Breathalyzer tests.

Officers also discovered the vehicle was uninsured and the plates attached did not match the vehicle.

NPD warns the public officers will continue crack down on impaired driving despite the holiday season ending.

UFC takes to the streets of Nelson

Nelson Police responded to multiple 9-1-1 calls Saturday afternoon in the 500 block of Ward Street of a fight in progress.

Responding officers quickly took the two combatants into custody.

Both parties alleged the other started the fight, which resulted in the two going through a nearby window.  Luckily neither of the two as seriously hurt.

The incident remains under investigation police receiving different accounts of what happened from witnesses.

As a result of the investigation, police found the 29-year male to be in breach of conditions of his release from a previous charge of uttering threats.

The man was also found to be in possession of what is believed to be cocaine and will appear in Nelson Courts to answer charges April 9.
