An officer responded to a report of someone screaming in the Hess Village on Nov. 19. The officer found a intoxicated 21-year-old woman who was not a student screaming and she refused to move. The officer also found a male student from Mountain Village, 23, who had an outstanding warrant. The man was arrested for his warrant and both were transported to the Fairbanks Correctional Center.

Come again?

A man, 56, came to a residence with severe burns on his legs after his tent caught fire on Nov. 19. He had recently been banned from UAF property after he and other squatters had set up tents on UAF property. He was the only one caught trespassing because the other tents were empty. On Nov. 19, he trespassed again. He was using a propane gas heater to warm up his tent on Tolovana Drive when it caught fire with him inside of it. He was able to walk out and get help. UAFPD and FD transported him to the Fairbanks Memorial Hospital and later criminally banned him from UAF property.

Lonely vehicle

On Nov. 21, an officer spotted an abandoned vehicle near the roadway by Wells Fargo on University Avenue. An officer contacted the owner and confirmed the vehicle had broken down. The driver was fine and the vehicle was moved by UAF PD to a safer area.

Advice for the week:

The holidays are kicking in.  Be aware of what you eat and drink. When attending a party, make sure to keep personal drinks nearby. If you leave your beverage somewhere, do not drink it. Instead, get a new drink. Do not over drink; drinking too much can cause people to behave inappropriately or black out.

Make sure to plug in cars. In this weather, vehicles are more vulnerable than ever to break down. Get a few phone numbers from people at the party in case of an emergency, so that there will be someone nearby who can help.
