Good Thurs. Nice morning here after a cool night of 50 degrees.

Yokelly, I had my head examined and was pronounced okay but advised to avoid thinking for two hours to be on the safe side.

Not too much going on locally, but we do have a Police Report—


• Tony G. Wilson, 28, of North Pole, was charged with misdemeanor assault for on Monday allegedly throwing his fiancée onto their couch, kicking her in the ribs and threatening to break her jaw if she told anyone about it. His fiancée told North Pole police that Wilson first grabbed her by the face and throat and threw her on their couch. He then grabbed her by the hair, threw her and begin kicking her, she said. Later, she said Wilson threatened her when he dropped her off at the North Pole Safeway to use the bathroom. Wilson was also charged with resisting arrest. When told he was under arrest he said “no” and tried to walk away, police said. He told police he had not assaulted his fiancée.

• Latrese Dillihunt, 20, of Fairbanks, was charged with misdemeanor assault for allegedly punching and scratching her boyfriend of two months Monday. Her boyfriend had substantial scratches on his neck and swelling over his right eye, Fairbanks police said. A Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Officer told police she saw Dillihunt kicking, punching and yelling at her boyfriend. Dillihunt pleaded guilty Tuesday.


• Tamra A. Gaston, 41, of Fairbanks, was charged with driving under the influence for allegedly driving after taking prescription medication while she had four children in her car. Gaston was swerving, driving slowly and crossing the centerline on Airport Way near Peger Road at 8:10 a.m. Monday, Fairbanks police said. She failed field sobriety tests and had difficulty keeping her balance, police said. Gaston told Fairbanks police she had taken some sleeping medication earlier in the morning. She said she had a prescription for Xanax but had not taken any recently. She registered a breath alcohol content of zero. A police drug recognition exam concluded Gaston was under the influence of a central-nervous-system depressant. Gaston was also charged with four counts of child endangerment because of the four children in her car. She told police they were her children and listed their ages as 3, 4, 7 and 10.

• Nathan Jimmy Peter, 21, of Fairbanks, was charged with driving under the influence for driving on the 900 block of 24th Avenue after allegedly drinking and smoking marijuana Monday. Peter was stopped for a seat belt violation and smelled strongly of alcohol and had watery eyes and poor dexterity, Fairbanks police said. He failed field sobriety tests and registered a breath alcohol content of 0.137 grams of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood, police said. The legal limit for driving is 0.08. He told police he had had two shots of liquor and that he had smoked marijuana three or four hours before.

Multiple charges

Sibbie E. Walters, 28, of Fairbanks was charged with third-degree (felony) assault and driving under the influence for allegedly driving while drunk and almost hitting someone at 3rd Avenue and Dunkel Street about 2 p.m. Monday. A man who had been standing outside of an American Tire and Auto truck told Fairbanks police that Walters collided with the truck and that he had to jump into the bed of the truck to avoid getting hit. She then sped off, he said. Police found Walters in a nearby apartment. She told police she left the scene because she did not have insurance and was afraid of the vehicle getting impounded. She said she had had a sip of whiskey after she started driving, but nothing before. She also said she had several Ambien pills before driving. She registered a breath-alcohol content of 0.248. Damage to the truck was estimated at more than $2,500. Bail was set at $5,000 in court Tuesday.

These folks are everywhere. Reminds me of the time two airport police showed up at my door looking for my next-door neighbor’s girlfriend. She later was busted for meth and now resides somewhere in an Alaska prison. My neighbor told me he thought he could straighten her out. Good luck with that.
