Whitehorse RCMP responded to a long series of alcohol-fueled fights, thefts and acts of mischief over the past week.

Police are asking witnesses to recount a fight outside the Capital Hotel Sunday that resulted in charges of assault with a weapon against a 38-year-old man, and assaulting and obstructing a cop against a 37-year-old woman.

Meanwhile, two men have been remanded in custody for breaking conditions of their probation and recognizance.

In one incident, a severely intoxicated man, who was on probation, harassed staff and refused to buy any food or leave McDonald’s.

The other breached his recognizance when he prompted 911 calls by touring the Arkell subdivision “knocking on doors and smashing things,” said an RCMP release.

A 40-year-old man required treatment at Whitehorse General Hospital for minor injuries and was charged with driving over the legal alcohol limit after he crashed his snowmobile into a building in McIntyre Saturday afternoon.

Two other males were charged with impaired driving Sunday on Mountainview Drive and Hamilton Boulevard.

Two Carmacks men, aged 17 and 21, have been charged with robbery, assault causing bodily harm and causing a disturbance after a ruckus downtown Whitehorse Saturday afternoon.

An Inuvik man caused damage to a police cruiser after closing time Saturday, when he kicked out one of the car windows after being arrested for causing a disturbance.

And a 25-year-old woman in Porter Creek called the police on herself Saturday, when she dialed 911 and requested “a taxi.”

A short time later, police found and arrested the woman, who was wanted on a number of outstanding charges. (BM)
