A 25-year-old Regina man locked himself in a restaurant's bathroom Tuesday and applied more than 20 nicotine patches to his body, police say.
Police were sent to the restaurant, in the 2200 block of Broad Street, around 4 p.m. responding to a report of a man who had been drinking and was said to be in distress.
"There was a concern for his safety," said Elizabeth Popowich, a spokeswoman for the Regina police. "EMS and police arrived and found that he had called a family member as well."
