The night of June 22 provided a couple of challenging scenarios for members of the Estevan Police Service.
One call came from the north side of the city when EPS members located a vehicle that had rolled off Highway 47. The highway was blocked off by EPS and RCMP members for about an hour while rescue crews removed the driver and vehicle debris from the roadway.
The accident is being investigated by members of the RCMP.
EPS members then attended to a business in the central part of the city in response to a call regarding an assault. When they arrived, police found an Ontario man who had been injured in the event.
Emergency medical attendants arrived at the scene and transported the man to hospital for treatment of what were later determined to be minor injuries, but the incident remains under investigation.
Earlier in the week, EPS members arrested a 57-year-old man for breaching the conditions of his recognizance, arrested a 32-year-old man on outstanding warrants and arrested a 19-year-old for being in breach of a probation order. These all happened on the night of June 19 and early morning of June 20.
On that same shift, EPS members arrested a 20-year-old man for escaping lawful custody and charged a 23-year-old man for impaired driving and driving while his blood-alcohol level was over .08 per cent plus driving while suspended. His vehicle was also impounded for 30 days.
On the night of June 23, city police attended to a residence on the city's southeast side following up on a report of a domestic dispute in progress. The man involved in the incident was removed from the scene and in the course of the arrest, the man assaulted a police officer. He was lodged in cells until sober and now has a court date scheduled in late July.
A report of theft of merchandise from a local business attracted police attention on June 23. Police were able to identify the suspect by reviewing surveillance recordings and a 20-year-old woman was later picked up and charged with theft and now has a July court date.
EPS members then received a report of a pedestrian being struck by a vehicle near a local lounge. When they attended the scene, they discovered the victim had suffered only minor injuries, but the driver of the offending vehicle had fled the scene so the matter remains under investigation.
On the night of June 24, police received a call regarding a possible impaired driver on the city's east side. They located the suspect vehicle on the grid road north of the Comprehensive School. The driver was extremely intoxicated, so the 59-year-old Regina resident was arrested and lodged in cells until sober and now faces charges of impaired driving and failing to provide a breath sample. He has a July court date.
A report of a number of people consuming alcohol outside of a local public lounge attracted police attention on June 24. Two 20-year-old Estevan men were found with open liquor so were charged for having open alcohol containers in public.
