Police lock up intoxicated man but not before trying to help him
An Elliot Lake man is charged with being intoxicated in a public place after getting into an altercation with police at the OPP office in Elliot Lake.
The 54-year-old was found wandering in the cold in a confused and drunken state when someone dropped him off at the detachment building.
That was Saturday night.
When police tried to find a place for the man overnight, he became belligerent and uncooperative.
That’s when he was put behind bars until he sobered up the next day.
