•A warning letter has been sent to the registered owner of a Ford Escape that nearly hit two vehicles near 40th Avenue and Highway 3.

•Bing. Bang. Bong. A car stopping at the direction of a flagger on an icy Northwest Boulevard played the lead in a four-vehicle bumper thumper as the next three drivers were unable to stop before hitting the vehicle in front of them. No injuries were reported.

•The owner of a 90-pound dog that was attacked and injured by a much smaller Rottweiler on Canyon Street is seeking compensation for a veterinarian’s bill of more than $800.

•An alleged assault involving two intoxicated Riondel males is under investigation.

•A driver was given a three-day driving prohibition after blowing a “warn” indication on a roadside screening device for alcohol on Kootenay River Road at a police check stop. Another of the 10 drivers stopped was issued an order to have vehicle repairs made.
