Tues

September 14, 2010

Happy Tues. Very nice morning here. We had northern lights last night late. Golden colors abound in the sunlight now.

Yokelly  a lot is going on but I will not bore you with the details. I did find time late yesterday afternoon to take some fall color photos. They always look the same. Usually not as good as the real thing, of course. Nosy followed me around and I got a few good pix of her. Here is one—

You can see the indentation of her fur on the right side of the photo where that dratted vet shaved a patch to work on her. The bald patch now sports a cat’s version of peach fuzz. She is lucky her sartorial treatment occurred while there is still time to grow fur back before the cold weather arrives.

Local news is the usual mix of the meritorious and the ill-advised. We have a Police Report. Here is the short version—

Assault

• Calvin Cofey, 41, of Fairbanks, was charged with two counts of fourth-degree assault after he allegedly grabbed his girlfriend by her hair and acted like he was going to hit her early Sunday morning in the 600 block of 11th Avenue.

• Arielle Doucette, 23, of Fairbanks, was charged with fourth-degree assault and disorderly conduct after she allegedly punched a Fairbanks police officer in the arm early Sunday morning in the Kodiak Jack’s parking lot. The officer approached Doucette after she pushed her brother and challenged him to a fight, according to charging documents.

• Francis Joseph Eakin, 22, was charged with fourth-degree assault after he allegedly grabbed his wife by the hair and threw her into a wall Saturday at Moose Creek Apartments.

• James T. Hood, 43, of Fairbanks, was charged with fourth-degree assault after he allegedly punched his girlfriend in the head Saturday afternoon. Two witnesses stopped the assault, though Hood told police the witnesses jumped him, according to charging documents.

• Bryan Kelly Joseph, Sr., 31, was charged with fourth-degree assault after he allegedly hit and kicked his girlfriend during the weekend in Minto.

• Jessica T.R. Smith, 20, of Fairbanks, was charged with second-degree felony assault after she allegedly stabbed her boyfriend in the shoulder early Sunday morning in the 5100 block of Decathlon Avenue. Smith’s boyfriend reportedly told Alaska State Troopers that Smith had cut him before and she was upset because she could not find her phone.

• Morgan Aniqsauq Solomon, 75, was charged with fourth-degree assault after he allegedly hit his wife in the arm and face.

• Christopher Kyle Vincent, 27, of Fairbanks, was charged with felony counts of second-degree and third-degree assault and misdemeanor counts of fourth-degree assault and interfering with the report of a crime involving domestic violence after he allegedly pushed his wife and put her in a rear naked choke Friday afternoon at Gold Rush Estates. The couple had been drinking and passed out. When Vincent’s wife awoke, she found him having sex with another woman and confronted him, according to charging documents. Vincent reportedly told troopers that he choked his wife in self-defense but might have used too much force.

• Ashley Michelle Wetzler, 26, of Fairbanks, was charged with fourth-degree assault after she allegedly threw a telephone and struck her husband in the head Saturday afternoon.

• Derek H. Williams, 21, of Allakaket, was charged with fourth-degree assault after he allegedly punched and kicked another man Saturday in the 5100 block of Amherst Drive. Williams reportedly was upset that the other man told him to go to bed.

DUI

• Lavonne Hope Dobson, 62, of North Pole, was charged with driving under the influence after she allegedly drove drunk Thursday from North Pole to the Fairbanks Cancer Treatment Center to get her husband to a chemotherapy appointment. A security guard called police after Dobson reportedly asked him to open her bottle of vodka. Dobson told police she had been drinking because she was upset with her husband’s diagnosis, according to charging documents. A chemical test found her breath-alcohol content to be 0.257.

• Lolita Gerilla Price, 35, of North Pole, was charged with driving under the influence after North Pole police stopped her for driving into oncoming traffic Saturday on the Old Richardson Highway near Patriot Drive. A chemical test found her breath-alcohol content to be 0.228.

Vehicle theft

• A Ford Mustang was reported stolen Sunday night from the Regal 16 Theater parking lot, and recovered a short time later half-submerged in the Tanana River near South Cushman Street. Anyone with information about the theft is asked to call state troopers at 451-5100.

Geez, you need to know wrestling holds to understand the police report. “Put her in a rear naked choke.” So he took his clothes off and choked her rear? Hard to picture. The police asked her why she stays with the guy. “Beats me,” she said.
