A man arrested for assault and discharging a handgun while evading the police last week was arraigned for previous charges on Tuesday.
Micah William Nelson, 28, was arraigned in Juneau Superior Court for a Sept. 18 felony of removing, tampering with, or escaping electronic monitoring equipment. He was also charged with violating the conditions of his release, a misdemeanor.
Judge Amy Mead set his bail higher, to $100,000, and set a trial date of Jan. 13, 2020 for the charges of removing his electronic monitoring device
“I can’t find that that bail is sufficient given the behavior you allegedly engaged in during pretrial release,” Mead said.
Nelson was arrested last week after an alleged assault, shooting at officers of the Juneau Police Department, and evading arrest. He was taken in custody peacefully last Thursday evening at the Frontier Suites.
Nelson was also arraigned for leaving the scene of a crash unattended in the Municipality of Anchorage in 2017.
Indictments for any charges forthcoming from Nelson’s alleged activities last week have not yet been filed.
