Boat motor stolen from storage

Anchorage police said they arrested Savanna Rabon, 18, of Eagle River for driving under the influence at the Providence Alaska Medical Center complex on the Old Glenn Highway in Eagle River after another driver called in a possibly drunk or impaired driver just before 10:30 p.m. on June 2.
Rabon performed poorly on field sobriety tests and was placed in a patrol car after being arrested, according to a report summary provided by police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker. Once inside the car, the report continued, Rabon became agitated and slammed her head against the car’s divider. Medics bandaged the wound on her forehead, the report said.

She was lodged at Anchorage Jail — no bail.
