Ice bucket challenge misfires for drunk man who ended up arrested

December 18, 2014 - 5:22 PM

NORTH BATTLEFORD, Sask. - A man has been arrested in North Battleford, Sask., after his ALS ice-bucket challenge misfired.

Mounties were called to a hotel after getting a call about a drunken, agitated man causing a scene and claiming he had been assaulted.

Witnesses said he wanted to take the challenge and convinced people to dump a bucket of ice water on him.

Trouble was, bystanders forgot to videotape the stunt and the water was colder than he expected, which made him angry and prompted him to kick everyone out of his room.

Police said the man was taken into custody because he had breached several court conditions, including not consuming alcohol.
