Weather prompts teen revelers’ surrender

Two teenage revelers nearly escaped arrest in Lewiston early New Year's Day but surrendered “within a couple of minutes due to being cold and wet,” police said.

The boy and girl were drunk in a hot tub in the 3600 block of Country Club Court while the owners were away on vacation when police arrived about 3:15 a.m. on Jan. 1.

Police arrested a man who was passed out in a vehicle in front of the home, then saw the teens run from the home in their swimsuits but soon return. They told police only three were in the hot tub and were released to their parents, but officers learned about 9:15 a.m. that another juvenile had fled the scene and not been heard from since, according to a news release.

Police and the boy's parents were assisted by the Nez Perce County Sheriff's Office and a tracking dog “due to the extreme cold weather and the fact that the juvenile was believed to be clothed only in a swimsuit and possibly a t-shirt,” according to a news release.

A resident found the boy passed out in a bedroom at his home a block from the crime scene about 12:30 p.m., police said. All four face underage consumption of alcohol charges. The fourth suspect also is charged with unlawful entry.

Groom arrested twice on wedding night

 LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) — A marriage got off to a rocky start after the 21-year-old groom from northern Idaho was arrested twice on his wedding night and charged with assaulting his new wife in nearby Eastern Washington.

  Court records show Nathan Lewis of Lewiston, Idaho, was charged Tuesday in Asotin County Superior Court with second-degree assault and interfering with a report of domestic violence.

The Nez Perce County Sheriff’s Office in Idaho says Lewis was married Sunday and later arrested for drunken and disorderly conduct in Lewiston.

Police say that after Lewis was released on bail, he assaulted his new wife at a home in nearby Clarkston, Wash. The bride told authorities she was slapped and choked during the altercation, the Lewiston Tribune reports.

Lewis is scheduled to be arraigned March 1.
