What a gentleman

Jan. 23- There was a motor vehicle accident on Alumni Drive. The 22-year-old female driver was unable to stop her car due to icy roads and hit a 21-year-old male driver’s car. She was found to be at fault, but the male driver did not want to have her cited, so the charge was dismissed. They exchanged insurance information. There was no damage or injuries. Facilities Services was called to gravel the road.

She was diggin’ it

Jan. 24- A 27-year-old female driver struck a tree near Thompson Drive and was attempting to dig herself out of her vehicle. She was coming around the icy corner and slid over, hit an embankment and got stuck. The woman was able to dig herself out and a man from the Grounds Crew at UAF Facilities Services helped pull out her car. No UAF damages were reported and minor damages were made to the vehicle. The officer gave her a warning for driving at basic speed, too fast for road conditions and a participation form to fill out. There were no injuries and the officer called for the area to be graveled.

That’s a signal

Jan. 25- A motor vehicle accident involving three vehicles occurred in the Patty Center Parking Lot. A 52-year-old male UAF property manager was driving his Dodge Durango towards the Student Recreation Center behind a 25-year-old woman from Fairbanks in a Subaru Impreza when she stopped to turn. The man was attempting to drive around the vehicle that he thought was turning right when the woman unexpectedly turned left, barely hitting his vehicle. The manager attempted to avoid the accident by moving left. He went up and over the parking curb and hit an unattended parked vehicle. A 22-year-old man witnessed the accident and said they were both at fault. The woman was cited for failure to signal and the man was cited for failure to drive on the right side of the road. There were minor damages and no injuries.


Jan. 26- A 33-year-old Bartlett Hall resident reported seeing an intoxicated man with a yellow jacket and a white hat stumbling and falling in the snow on Yukon Drive between the Moore-Bartlett-Skarland Complex and the Reichardt Building. Two campus police officers found the 18-year-old man in the MBS Complex, which he resides in. The man failed a  preliminary breath test. He was cited for being an intoxicated minor and he gave consent for the officers to search his dorm for alcohol. They found none.

I wanna go home

Jan. 26- An MBS Resident Assistant reported an intoxicated unresponsive woman with an odor of alcohol lying on a bench at the entrance of the Residence Life Office snoring. The RA attempted to wake her, but she was unresponsive. A campus police officer responded and found her to be a 20-year-old ex-resident of Bartlett Hall who is now living off campus.

The officer was going to give her a ride, but had to pat her down for weapons prior to that and found a used marijuana pipe in her jacket pocket. She refused to speak to the officer and told him to “Fuck off!” as he read her Miranda rights.

She was trespassed from all of UAF and transported to the Fairbanks Correctional Center. She was charged with being a minor habitually consuming alcohol and for possession of marijuana.

Window pain

Jan. 27- A Lathrop Hall window pane to a 24-year-old female RD’s apartment was broken. There were two different screens missing and it appeared as if someone either threw something and the shattered pane or climbed up and punched it. Officers contacted Facilities Services to install new windows. Footprints were left behind and officers took photos, but there are no suspects.
