Unalaska police blotter

AnchorageFebruary 24, 2014 

 Animal – Caller reported being unable to get from her vehicle to her workplace as she was surrounded by numerous foxes. She provided additional information indicating that a woman who lives nearby might be feeding the foxes and contributing to their increasingly familiar behavior. An officer chased two foxes from the area in order that the caller might get into her workplace.                                        

Welfare Check – Officer checked on a man who had been passed out in a local restaurant and found that he was upright and attempting to get a taxi. The officer offered to assist him in this endeavor but received a scornful reply from the drunk.  

Traffic Crime – An officer searching for the driver of a vehicle parked in a Handicapped Parking space at the PCR found the man running around the indoor track. The driver, who began limping when the officer approached, ultimately moved his vehicle to a more appropriate space.              

Drunk Disturbance – Officer observed what appeared to be a fight in progress outside the bar. The involved parties informed the officers they were simply engaging in an activity they termed “sack tapping,” apparently normal behavior for members of their boat crew. The officer advised the men it might be more appropriate to engage in said behavior in a less public venue.
