Driver arrested after road rage incident
Anchorage police said they arrested George Spohrer, 31, of Eagle River on March 15 after someone in another vehicle said Spohrer brandished a handgun at him while traveling on the Glenn Highway.
The complainant, a 35-year-old Eagle River man, said Spohrer was tailgating him, police spokeswoman Dani Myren said. Spohrer said the other driver cut him off and flipped him off.
Police took Spohrer to Anchorage Jail, where he was lodged on $2,500 bail.
Anchorage police said they arrested a 30-year-old Eagle River woman for assault after responding to a disturbance involving a friend or family member on March 17. The woman was lodged at Anchorage Jail.
In a separate incident the same day, a 27-year-old Anchorage woman was charged with assault at an Eagle River residence after an incident involving a friend or family member.
Anchorage police said they arrested Christopher Edward Jimenez, 41, of Eagle River for leaving the scene of an accident and driving under the influence after an officer stopped him at Wells Fargo for hitting the bus stop across from Garcia’s Cantina & Cafe and continuing to drive.
The report was logged just before 3 a.m. on March 16. Jimenez provided a breath-alcohol sample more than twice the legal limit. He was lodged at Anchorage Jail on $250 bail.
Two other DUI arrests occurred on St. Patrick’s Day, according to police. Arrested were:
Torren Mykel Harrison, 20, of Anchorage after being stopped at the Wells Fargo at about 1:30 a.m. The probable cause for the stop was not available. Harrison provided a breath-alcohol sample just under twice the legal limit. He was transported to Anchorage Jail.
Cody Mark Graham, 21, of Eagle River after being stopped just before midnight for speeding — police said as fast as 115 mph — on the northbound Glenn Highway near the South Birchwood exit. Graham provided a breath-alcohol sample nearly three times the legal limit. He was lodged at Anchorage Jail on $250 bail.
