Here are further highlights from the police log of the Unalaska Department of Public Safety. Read more from the log via the Dutch Harbor Telegraph. For background on the UDPS police blotter, see "Unalaska police blotter makes for great Alaska literature" (KTUU, Feb. 16, 2012) and "Dutch Harbor: The police blotter heard 'round the world" (Los Angeles Times, Feb. 5, 2009)

Assistance Rendered - Previously convicted assailant reported that since he returned to town, his victim has been giving him the stink-eye. An officer advised the assailant to simply avoid looking at the victim.

Suspicious Person/Activity - A driver left his vehicle parked in the middle of the roadway while he investigated the interior of a salmonberry thicket. The driver told an officer that other people had left their vehicles in the same location, so he assumed parking in the roadway was acceptable.

Disorderly Conduct - An intoxicated man with a $337 bar tab refused to pay his bill and instead returned to his hotel room and passed out. After officers arrived he attempted to pay with an $8000 check, which could not be accepted. The inebriate was allowed to stay the night, to be evicted in the morning.

Liquor Law Violation - Acting on a tip from another patron, an officer checked the Harbor View Bar bathroom and found a pair of blue Converse shoes and associated body parts sticking out of a bathroom stall. The drunk to which the shoes were attached eventually stumbled out of the stall and was advised he was not allowed to remain on the premises.

Welfare Check - Officers checked on a man running back and forth across the roadway and found a mildly intoxicated young man who said he was enjoying the wet and windy weather and was walking to his brother's vessel.
