Wed

January 26, 2011

Good Weddance. Nice day shaping up here at -9. The Joppe is in the sheepe.

Nothing too much to mention within 50 yards and 12 hours of here.

Local news is pretty tame today, mostly imported stuff.

We have these salty items in the PR—

Assault

• John James Grandstaff, 43, of Fairbanks, was charged with fourth-degree assault for biting a store clerk on the arm. The store clerk said Grandstaff was intoxicated and roaming around the Holiday gas station on Geist on Jan. 7. After he made purchases, he reportedly asked her if she hunted because of a hunting-related tattoo on her right arm. Then he allegedly bit her on her right forearm, in the location of the tattoo and left the store. He told troopers he bit her because he was an animal rights activist, but he didn’t mean to hurt her.

Grandstaff also was charged with fourth-degree assault on a separate date. On Sunday, a Fairbanks police officer found Grandstaff lying in the parking lot of Kentucky Fried Chicken. He officer transported him to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital for medical screening. While walking into the emergency room, Grandstaff reportedly turned and headbutted the officer. Grandstaff also was charged with urinating in public when the officer discovered urine in the back of the patrol car that had not been there before picking up the defendant.

• Eldon Warren, 48, of Fairbanks, was charged with fourth-degree assault for reportedly injuring his girlfriend Sunday night. His girlfriend said they started fighting when Warren accused her of being unfaithful. She said they had been dating for five years. He allegedly grabbed her by the neck, slapped her on the face and pushed her to the ground. Troopers said redness and bruising corroborated the complaint. The defendant denied he did anything physical.

Enjoy Wed.
