High-speed race leads to DUI arrests

Two Eagle River men were arrested for driving under the influence after racing one another traveling northbound on the Glenn Highway at 2:30 a.m. on Oct. 12.

Jarred Thomas Sekula, 22, and Augustus Anthony Anderson, 23, reached speeds of 100 mph, said Anchorage Police spokesperson Dani Myren. Sekula provided a breath sample of .106 and Anderson provided a breath sample of .150, she said. The legal limit is .08.

Both men were taken to Anchorage Jail with bail set at $1,000 for Sekula and $2,500 for Anderson.

The arrested stemmed from a REDDI (report every drunk driver immediately) report, Myren said.
