Alcohol fuelled at least four of the minors arrests police made during the 24 hours between Saturday morningn and Sunday morning.

The first was a 21-year-old woman who was involved in an altercation in the 700-block of Victoria Avenue on Saturday morning. Police say that when they arrived, she was too drunk to release on her own, and they couldn't find anyone to care for her. She was held in custody until she sobered up.

Later that day, on Saturday evening, a 51-year-old man was involved in a disturbance at a hotel in the 2700-block of Victoria Avenue, and refused to leave. Police arrested him and jailed him to prevent a breach of the peace.

Then, sometime past midnight in the wee hours of Sunday morning, officers were called to a downtown bar where the father of a 19-year-old woman said he needd help controlling her. Police say she was being combative and was trying to fight anyone who came along.

A 20-year-old man was also picked up by police early Sunday morning to prevent a continuation of breach of the peace after he hopped a fence and damaged some lawn ornaments in the 300-block 26th Street. The property owner did not wish to proceed with a criminal complaint but the man was ticketed for being drunk and disorderly in public.

Finally, Sunday morning, police were called to the 400-block of Third Street where a woman was reportedly laying in the middle of the street. She had gotten up and moved along by the time officers arrived, but they spotted her in the 600-block of Sixth Street, in what they called a state of gross intoxication. She was taken to the drunk tank for her own safety, police say.
