Troopers patrol Arctic Man

By John Thain 8:35 AM April 14, 2014
PAXSON –

From disorderly conduct to DUIs, Alaska State Troopers kept busy at Arctic Man over the weekend.

The popular ski and snowmachine race draws thousands of people to the Hoodoo Mountains outside of Paxson every year, and troopers are tasked with patrolling the site over the course of the two-day event. This year, according to AST dispatch, nearly a dozen people were arrested or cited for everything from driving while intoxicated to misconduct involving weapons. Several underage revelers were caught drinking in the event’s beer tent.

“You got to have a lot of patience for a job like this,” said AST Sgt. Luis Nieves.
