A 36-year-old man was arrested for drunk driving after he hit a pedestrian with his vehicle on Muldoon Road Saturday night.


Someone called police at 11:53 p.m., saying a man had been hit by a vehicle. Police found a 36-year-old man in the roadway and a blue Chevrolet Trailblazer. The driver of the Trailblazer was identified as 36-year-old Eric Potter, police said.


The victim was transported to the hospital with “serious but non-life threatening injuries,” according to police. Police said he was not crossing the road at a crosswalk.


Potter stayed at the scene, according to police, and was charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, as well as first-degree assault and refusing to submit to a chemical test, court records show. He was taken to the Anchorage Correctional Complex.


Police said all northbound lanes of the Muldoon were briefly closed at 32nd Avenue but later reopened.
