Police Blotter: Naughty Bonfire & a Drunken Sailor

[A man], 50 yoa, of Unalaska, was arrested on one count of Assault IV-DV after officer investigated a report of a fight at a boarding house. [He] struck his roommate in the face after his roommate heard him screaming into the phone and told him to be quiet.

Welfare Check
Caller asked that officers check on a possibly intoxicated woman who had an argument with her husband and might be outside in inclement conditions. Officers checked the area where the woman was last seen and found no indication of either the woman or inclement weather. They were later notified that the woman had hidden herself to avoid contact with police.

Liquor Law Violation
Officer contacted a man who had passed out on a toilet at the Harbor View Bar. The man, who upon waking remembered why he had come to the bathroom, finished his business before leaving the bar pursuant to the officer's advisement that he not enter or remain on a licensed premise this night.

Traffic Crime
Caller reported a speeding taxi. An officer contacted the suspect driver, who admitted to speeding on her clients' behalf. The driver was warned that late clients do not constitute a legal right to speed.

Fire Safety
Caller reported a bonfire near Unisea. Officers found one bonfire in an area far from Unisea, but did not observe the bonfire committing any criminal acts.

Liquor Law Violation
Officer advised a drunken sailor that he was not allowed to enter or remain on any licensed premises for the rest of the night, due to his level of intoxication. The man left in the company of his shipmates, who agreed to see him safely to his hotel room.

Assistance Rendered
Caller reported a possibly suicidal crew member on his vessel. Officers responded and found a man who had been unable to sleep, had had a headache for days and was generally unable to reconcile himself to the Aleutians' famed gloomy skies and dark oceans. There was no indication the man was suicidal but medical care was requested for his other issues.

So glad the bonfire was behaving itself! lol

Rev. Paul said...

Apparently it was quite well-behaved. :^D

Old NFO said...

Wow... As usual, strange ones up there!

Rev. Paul said...

Absolutely, NFO. Life writ large, but seen through a liquor bottle.

Well Seasoned Fool said...

"observe the bonfire committing any criminal acts".

Probably not intoxicated either.

Rev. Paul said...

Making the fire the only sober individual with whom the police came into contact that week.

Ain't that the truth, Rev. Which is a good thing, as I don't think the fine members of the police force want to try breathalyzing a bonfire.

Not to mention, if they tried to escort it back to its ship or bunkhouse, the owners might refuse entry...

Rev. Paul said...

So now I'm stuck with the mental image of a fire leaping from hilltop to hilltop, yelling, "I'm free! Freeeee...!"
