On June 18, 2022, at 4:22 pm, the Alaska State Troopers were notified that an adult male was creating a significant traffic hazard by walking in and out of traffic near mile 24 of the Seward Highway. A Seward-based Alaska State Trooper responded to the area and located a naked 22-year-old Anchorage resident walking down the middle of the Seward Highway. Attempts to communicate with the male and convince him to leave the roadway were unsuccessful. The male became aggressive and physically assaulted the trooper by fighting and biting him, in addition to violently slamming his own head into the Trooper’s marked patrol vehicle. Taser and OC deployments showed no effect on the male, and the Trooper ultimately had to physically restrain the male with the use of his baton. Medical personnel subsequently transported the male to a Seward area hospital for medical treatment and evaluation. Criminal charges of Assault IV and Criminal Mischief are forthcoming.
