Police made five minor arrests Tuesday during the day and through the night — including three people who were so drunk they were passed out in public.
They said Wednesday morning that in the previous 24 hours, they had arrested a total of four people for being drunk in public, starting at noon.
That’s when they came across a 33-year-old man passed out on a lawn on the 900-block of 11th Street.
Later Tuesday afternoon, at about 3:50 p.m., a 43-year-old man was found passed out in the Keystone Centre complex.
Then, early Wednesday, just past 3 a.m., a 32-year-old man was found passed out near the corner of 12th Street North and Assiniboine Avenue.
All three were taken to the drunk tank for the night.
A fourth drunk man was arrested just before 5 a.m. at the hospital. The 21-year-old wasn’t a patient, but was drunk, making a nuisance of himself and refusing to leave. Police say he was arrested to prevent a breach of the peace and would be released once he sobered up.
A fifth minor arrest on Tuesday was a 15-year-old girl, who was taken to the Youth Addictions Stabilization Unit in Winnipeg.
