Charges for three
Anchorage police concluded three outstanding traffic investigations, culminating with charges against three drivers.
21-year-old Tex Daniels, on January 24, was arrested for two counts of first-degree assault, DWI and failure to render aid. He'd lost control of his pickup truck and struck two pedestrians, one of whom was critically injured and the other seriously injured. Daniels had a blood alcohol content of .226; the legal limit is .08.
In another case, 27-year-old Richard Alexander was issued a warrant for driving with his license suspended, felony eluding, misdemeanor eluding, third-degree assault, first-degree assault and failure to render aid. On September 29, a police officer attempted to stop Alexander and he sped off quickly, colliding with another car after he ran a stop sign. He then fled on foot, while passengers from both vehicles were taken to local hospitals. Police found cough syrup and pain pills in Alexander's car. If you have any information as to Alexander's whereabouts, APD requests you call 786-8900. Alexander, pictured above, is 5'8", 150 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes, and was born in September of 1984.
On September 15, in the third vehicular case, 28-year-old Lindsey Tipton was arrested for DWI and failure to render aid after she struck a pedestrian with her BMW after a disturbance and fled the scene.
