An Alaska state trooper had to swerve out of the way Saturday evening to avoid a Wasilla man participating in a car race down Pittman Road, troopers said.
Miles Walker, 34, was arrested for reckless driving, troopers said. Walker and Scott Parker, 38, of Wasilla were cited for racing on the roadway.
Walker and Parker were racing down Pittman when Walker's 2005 Subaru went into the oncoming lane at a high rate of speed around a blind curve and into the trooper's path, according to a troopers dispatch. The trooper took evasive action to avoid Walker's car. Alcohol was a contributing factor, troopers said.
Drinking, driving too fast, and running a State trooper off the road? I can't begin to count the stoopid!
