Disorderly conduct

Failure to stop

• At about 3:46 p.m. Monday, Juneau-based Alaska State Troopers attempted to stop a black 1996 Dodge Ram pickup truck on Mendenhall Loop Road for speeding. The car did not stop, as the driver attempted to elude the trooper. The driver and passenger then fled the car on foot in the trailer park area on Stephen Richards Drive. Troopers caught up to them and apprehended them after a short foot chase. The driver was issued a citation for driving with a suspended licence. Charges of fourth-degree drug misconduct and failing to stop at the direction of an officer were forwarded to the Juneau District Attorney’s Office for prosecution. The names were not released, Troopers spokesperson Megan Peters said, because no arrest was made.
