The evils of drink

Battling couple

Feb. 4 at 10:50 pm police attended a residence on the Ashcroft Reserve for a reported assault. An investigation of the incident resulted in both a male and female being arrested for assaulting each other. The 23 year old female will appear in Kamloops Provincial Court on March 10 and the 26 year old male will appear on March 13. The assaults resulted in only minor injuries. Liquor was a factor with both parties.

Heat but no fire
