Off-duty Juneau police officer arrested on suspicion of DUI after crash

JUNEAU — An off-duty Juneau police officer was taken into custody after a traffic crash on the North Douglas Highway.

Officer Brent Bartlett was arrested Sunday on suspicion of driving under the influence and felony assault, according to Juneau police.

Police say the third-degree assault charge was tied to causing injuries to a person while driving impaired.

Online court records do not list Bartlett's attorney. He remained jailed Monday morning at Lemon Creek Correctional Center.

Police shortly before 6:30 p.m. Sunday received report of a crash and determined that an outbound truck on the North Douglas Highway had rear-ended a second truck.

A 48-year-old woman in the front truck was transported to the Bartlett Regional Hospital for treatment of injuries that police describe as non-life threatening.
