Police Blotter: Bonus Edition

I didn't have time to visit the Unalaska Police Blotter on Monday, so this is a bit late. Apologies, et cetera.

Drunk Disturbance
Caller reported a fight outside a local drinking establishment. Officers responded to the area but found there was nobody around. Investigation revealed two groups of individuals became involved in a physical altercation that was quickly broken up. All the involved left in different taxis. No injuries are suspected.

Caller reported seeing an individual walking in a closed area of the Iliuliuk Creek with a bag of salmon. An officer contacted the individual who said he caught the salmon legally in an open area of the creek. He was walking back to his residence via the creek. The bag contained an appropriate number of Pink Salmon all of which appeared to have been legally caught.

Welfare Check
Officers responded to assist an individual who was reportedly sleeping on the sidewalk. After determining the clearly intoxicated slumberer was able to care for himself, the officers assisted him in finding his way home.

Welfare Check
Officers assisted an intoxicated individual, who had previously been assisted to his home but had miraculously found his way back to the exact same location in which he had been previously found, in finding a place to sleep.

Domestic Disturbance
Officers were advised of an unknown female needing assistance from an unknown location for an unknown reason. Screaming could be heard in the background of the phone call. The officers were able to narrow the possible locations and found the individual in distress. Although no criminal activity was discovered, the female was assisted in relocating to a safe location.

Officers responded to investigate a report of an assault. [A man], 36 yo, was arrested for Assault 3rd degree after he repeatedly hit and seriously bit an individual.

Traffic Roads
Caller reported an empty 55 gal barrel rolling around on the roadway. The barrel was no longer in the area when the officer arrived.

Suspicious Activity
Caller reported that vehicles were driving on the walking path around the ballfield. An officer responded and discovered that the vehicles were transporting items for the Polynesian Culture Night at the Heart of the Aleutians Festival.

Domestic Disturbance
Officers responded to investigate a report of two roommates having a physical altercation. The investigation revealed that one of the roommates had assaulted the other. The assaulted party did not wish to pursue the matter and his injury was slight. The DA’s office was contacted and a non-arrest was authorized. The two were warned about the Domestic Violence laws and moved to separate accommodations.

Assistance Rendered
Caller wanted the officers to check his company housing for “unauthorized partying.” The officers responded and did not find anyone partying, authorized or otherwise.

The first time I saw you post regarding UNALASKA, I thought it a joke!

"Captain, you canna mix Alaska and Unalaska!..."

I actually had to look it up...
Based on what I've read about Alaska, it does appear they are indeed one!

It's a real place; both the village, and the island. Could be worse ... it could be Eek. :)

Terry said...

I would consider Polynesian Culture Night in Alaska suspicious all by itself. :)

Rev. Paul said...

You shouldn't, Terry. We have a HUGE population of Pacific Islanders up here. I've never figured out why, though.

Hoo boy, another one of THOSE weeks...

Rev. Paul said...

They seem to be having a busy August.

Rev. Paul said...

Chickenmom - are you a big a fan of Frankie Laine as I am? :)

Chickenmom said...

Yep! :o)

That patch of concrete sidewalk must have been pretty darn comfortable.

Fiona said...

Your Police must have a sense of humor!

Rev. Paul said...

Those on Unalaska must indeed be long-suffering & patient. The local cops in this part of the state ... I'm not so sure.
