Unalaska Police Blotter: Lost on a Mountain, and The Cook is Drunk

From the Dutch Harbor Telegraph:

Traffic Roads – A stranger to the island called to say that he was lost on a mountain somewhere and his car had broken down on some remote road whose name he did not know. Officers were able to determine the man’s most likely location, and subsequently transported him back to his hotel so that he could make arrangements to retrieve his rental car.

Assistance Rendered – Drunken caller asked officers to remove a drunken friend from the caller’s residence. By the time officers arrived, the caller had forgotten what he wanted.

Assistance Rendered - Drunken caller again asked officers to remove the same drunken friend from the caller’s residence, then called back to say he no longer needed police assistance.

Assault – The drunken caller’s drunken brother reported that the drunken friend had assaulted his brother. An officer responded and found one drunken brother on the floor; the drunken friend was nowhere to be found. Neither brother was able to accurately describe what had happened.

Assistance Rendered – A drunk asked that officers mediate a dispute about a bottle of alcohol, because the caller was not big enough to fight his brother over the bottle.

Harassment – An officer responded to a local restaurant, where a waitress was allegedly being cursed by a cook. The officer determined that the cook had been drinking and was upset because the waitress kept returning food orders as being improperly prepared and had made obscene gestures at her. No threats were made. A replacement cook came in to take over duties in the kitchen.

Drunk Disturbance – Caller asked officers to take custody of a man who had been drinking for several days and who the caller was tired of watching. Officers found the drunk passed out on his bed, and later determined his drinking was a violation of court orders.

Rev. Paul,

The police need a break from all these alcohol related calls so they can take care of real criminals.

Sandy, those ARE the criminal calls in Dutch Harbor. It's a really small community.

Never underestimate the ability of a tourist to completely screw up. Maybe Dutch Harbor has grown a lot in the thirty or so years since I was there.
Just looked at it on Google Earth and I didn't see many roads.

WSF, it hasn't gotten much bigger. I suspect the visitor was following a jeep path, or something even less substantial.
