Can’t curb this one
A 27-year-old Fairbanks man was spotted driving over the curb early Sunday, Sept. 4. He was found to be driving under the influence of alcohol. The curb-jumper was arrested, taken to the Fairbanks Correctional Center and charged with a DUI.
Worst tests to fail
On Labor Day, a 24-year-old woman from Colorado was arrested for a DUI and taken to the Fairbanks Correctional Center after she failed to properly perform a set of field sobriety tests. And we thought failing college tests was bad…
On Sept. 2, a Lower 48 police department told UAF police that a faculty member at another college campus had received a threatening email from a UAF employee. An investigation is now in progress.
An officer responded to a report of a woman found passed out in Moore Hall on Sept. 6. When the officer showed up, there were several women at the scene. The 19-year-old underage drinker was taken to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital because police were unable to wake her up. Police found out she was a repeat offender. The next day she was summonsed for illegal drinking and arrested on an outstanding warrant. Police found another individual, an 18-year-old woman from Fairbanks, also illegally consuming alcohol. It was her second offense. A third female was given a disorderly conduct warning for her behavior.
Going separate ways
On Sept. 6, there was a collision between two motor vehicles in the parking lot north of the upper campus dorms. There were minor damages and neither driver reported the incident at the time. Later, one of them went to the UAF police department to request an accident participation form. UAF police took photos of the vehicle.
