Unruly nightclub patron taken to jail to sober up, Kamloops Mounties say

No charges after bar fight

A Kamloops man was taken from the bar to jail over the weekend, held behind bars to sober up after allegedly causing a ruckus at a downtown nightclub.

According to Mounties, officers were in the area of a bar on Fifth Avenue at about 1:30 a.m. on Saturday when they spotted staff struggling with an unruly patron.

RCMP Cpl. Crystal Evelyn said the man was swearing, yelling and causing a disturbance.

“The man had allegedly assaulted another patron and was being removed,” she said.

The victim in the bar assault was not co-operative with police. The man was held in jail until sober and then released without process, meaning Mounties are not contemplating charges.
