Brandon police made a series of minor arrests on Thursday, including eight people who were taken to the drunk tank and a woman who was wanted on assault charges.
On Thursday afternoon, officers went to a home in the 1100-block of Eighth Street, where they found a 23-year-old woman who was the subject of an arrest warrant. She was arrested and later released, with a court date of Aug. 5, where she'll facing charges of assault, failure to comply with undertaking, and failure to attend court.
They also said Friday morning that in the previous 24 hours, they had picked up eight people for alcohol-related offences.
It started at 2:30 in the afternoon, when a 44-year-old man was hauled in. He was joined by a 43-year-old man who was found highly intoxicated in Princess Park.
Police also picked up three younger men — aged 21, 23 and 28 — who were held to prevent any further breaches of the peace after they'd apparently caused some problems in a bar in the 800-block of Pacific Avenue. Officers found them shortly after in the 700-block of Rosser Avenue.
Two other younger men were picked up for causing issues around the city. One 20-year-old man spent the rest of the night in jail after night club security in the 3100-block of Victoria Avenue called the cops on him. And, a drunk 27-year-old man was also jailed after he banged on the door of a Clark Drive home, trying to get in. Residents said they had no idea who he was.
Finally, a 15-year-old girl was also taken to the drunk tank for underage drinking. Her own mother called police, asking for help in controlling the girl.
