Hotel ‘station’ a busy place

The price of excessive partying can be expensive, say police, and could include a night spent in a cell sobering up if police determine an individual is too drunk to make rationale decisions about getting home.
The long weekend brought about a number of situations in which police ended up providing lodgings for the night.
Saturday evening around 8, police responded to a disturbance in the downtown regarding a male, 31, who, say police, was carrying on in a drunken state. He was arrested “for his own safety,” taken into custody and held until sober. He was issued a provincial offences ticket.
Earlier, about 2 a.m. Saturday morning, police were called to a possible domestic dispute. Arriving at a city address, they found “a number of people being loud and disorderly.”
A Barrie man, 23, was arrested for being intoxicated in public and taken into custody as “he was not in a position to make rational decisions for himself,” say police, adding the “price of partying on the weekend can get expensive.”
Meanwhile, around the same time in downtown Barrie, police encountered a man, 20, who “wasn’t able to follow directions and just go home as he was clearly in a drunken state,” say police, adding that his friends were in no condition to get him home.
So, he was arrested for being intoxicated in public and spent the night in a cell sobering up. He was released with a provincial offences fine.
