Nelson Police say they responded to 60 calls over the long weekend.

Police were called to Lakeside Drive and Hall Street for a woman screaming. The “woman“ ended up being a man causing a disturbance who had several outstanding warrants. The man was arrested and is being held pending a court appearance.

Officers also responded to a call, that same night, at an ATM area at a local bank. A shirtless man was found to have outstanding warrants. He was arrested and released the following day after appearing before a Judge.
