Caller said she was sick and tired of the way taxi
drivers drive, and reported that one of them had just cut her off. An
officer contacted the suspect driver, who predictably denied any
wrongdoing, and issued a warning.
Officers responded to multiple locations listed as
the residence of a man from whom a 911 hang-up call had been received,
only to find that the man whom they sought was not present at any of
them. The man eventually phoned police to report that he had
accidentally pocket-dialed 911.
Officers, ambulance and fire department personnel responded to the scene of a controlled
burn which had been reported as a towering fire, and learned that there
was a responsible party on scene monitoring the burn.
Woman reported the driver of a blue or white
flatbed swerving on the roadway. An officer located the suspect driver,
who immediately denied any poor driving and called the woman a liar. The
officer advised the man to drive safely.
Officers conducted a welfare check on an extremely
intoxicated man who had vomited in his bed and would not wake up. The
responding officer inspected the unconscious man and requested EMS; the
inebriate awoke shortly thereafter and told the officer he was fine and
to get out of his room.
UDPS forwarded information to the US Coast Guard
regarding the location of a small plane which had touched down on a
remote beach but which could not take off for the return trip to
Unalaska. The pilot and passenger, who were both unharmed and in
sporadic contact with their families, declined emergency rescue, spent
the night in the sand and were collected by a friend the next morning.
The plane was left at the beach for recovery at a later date.
Assist Other Agency
US Coast Guard reported having received a distress
signal from an Emergency Position-Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) associated with the F/V Pacific Knight. Officers
confirmed that the vessel, which has been unoccupied and tied to the
dock for a number of years, was still afloat. They also determined that
the EPIRB was missing from the vessel’s sea shelter. Other mariners
later reported the EPIRB in the harbor.
