Unalaska police blotter

Courtesy the Unalaska Department of Public Safety:

Drunk Disturbance – Officers responded to a hotel room regarding an intoxicated squatter who had not paid for his room. Officers determined that the drunk had been fired for fighting with his captain, had been given significant severance pay, and had run out of friends who were willing to deal with him. Officers found one last person who was willing to let him sleep in the front yard.

Drunk Disturbance – An intoxicated squatter was seen wandering about in the road and yelling. Officers responded and determined that the man’s earlier camping arrangements were no longer suitable. The squatter was provided with contact information for a person who might be able to help him with his problems.

Animal – Mother reported her son had been attacked by a bald eagle, leaving him with a laceration on the right side of his head. The on-call physician was notified and asked to contact the mother.

Assistance Rendered – Caller reported three apparently sober men walking irresponsibly. An officer responded to the area but did not find any irresponsible pedestrians.
