Fleeing assault suspect carries son into Fairbanks traffic
A report Thursday night of a vehicle in a Fairbanks ditch led to a man being taken into custody on domestic-violence assault charges, according to Alaska State Troopers.
Troopers said in an online dispatch on the arrest of 25-year-old Fairbanks resident Leo Huntington that they had responded to the ditched vehicle at about 10:15 p.m. Thursday. As they did so, they were approached by “a female who gave information regarding the crash.”
“During the course of (the) arrest, Leo attempted to evade troopers by running into oncoming traffic while holding his young son in his arms,” troopers wrote.
Troopers were able to arrest Huntington without injuries. He was held at the Fairbanks Correctional Center on charges of fourth-degree domestic-violence assault, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct.
