The man had minor injuries and fled the scene. The crash also caused thousands of dollars in damage to the utility pole and caused power to go out. Troopers arrested the man at 2:22 p.m. and charged him with driving under the influence and failure to make an immediate notice of a crash.

Alaska Wildlife Troopers issued a summons to a 51-year-old Anchor Point man for violations stemming from an August 2010 caribou hunt. Troopers allege the man harvested a bull caribou without a nonresident caribou tag and unlawfully transported the caribou to his Anchor Point home. Troopers also allege the man made false claims of Alaska residency on his 2010 hunting-sport fish license and brown-grizzly bear tag applications while also getting resident benefits from Minnesota.

An Anchor Point man at 9:25 p.m. reported someone kicked in the front door of his Birch Street home, causing about $100 in damages. Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call troopers at 235-3000.
