Trooper wounded in altercation with drunk soldier during arrest
An Alaska State Trooper required medical treatment after a fight with a Chugiak soldier in Wasilla, who resisted arrest after showing up for drill drunk Saturday, according to a trooper dispatch.
Troopers received multiple complaints Saturday from others at the Alcantro Armory in Wasilla that a soldier had arrived “intoxicated and he had a smell of alcohol on him,” troopers wrote.
Isaac Marmor, 27, was met on scene and was found to have driven himself to the armory while intoxicated, after troopers conducted a field sobriety test. Troopers attempted to place him under arrest, but Marmor resisted. A fight ensued, leaving one of the troopers complaining of a shoulder injury, court documents say. He was taken to Mat-Su Regional Hospital.
Marmor was taken into custody and faces charges of fourth-degree assault, driving under the influence, resisting arrest and fourth-degree criminal mischief. Troopers say he was taken to the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility and is being held on $5,000 bail.
