Call conundrum: cops respond to arrow altercation and towel troubles

From the strange-but-true Trail RCMP files:

“On May 24, the Trail and Greater District Detachment RCMP responded to a call of male shooting arrows with a bow across Casino Road,” said Trail top cop Sgt. Mike Wicentowich. “The RCMP spoke to a 35-year-old and a 56-year-old male (both Trail residents) who didn’t realize the potential consequences of their actions. The males were compliant and ceased this activity after the warning from the RCMP. 

“Alcohol consumption was a factor in this matter. “

Two days later, on May 26, at 11:01 p.m. , police responded to a call of disturbance in the 2000 block of Daniel Street, Wicentowich said. 

“The complainant was upset that her roommate put too many towels in the dryer.  Alcohol was a factor in the dispute.  This matter was determined not to be a police matter and the parties were asked to separate from each other for the night.”
