Woman Pulled From Barrie Bay, Taken To Hospital, Then Jail

Police Say A Few Drinks Helped This Woman End Up In The Drink

Barrie Police had their hands full after someone was heard calling for help from the water this morning. Calls came into the police station just before 2:00, that someone was shouting from the water near the Lakeshore Drive docks, and police found a woman in the water; they say she wasn’t hurt, except for her liver. The woman was reportedly very intoxicated. She was taken to hospital, where police say she became pretty uncooperative and fled. Officers tracked her down nearby and took her to jail for her own safety until she sobered up.
