found at this fine fellow’s blog.…all the bizarre news of Dutch Harbor inebriation and other depravities of a less than polite social order not fit to print but done so anyway! He has them all going back to May 2009 all in one place…what a veritable treasure trove!
Some tibits from the latest juicy edition:
Traffic crime, July 18 — Officer stopped a speeding driver and learned that the sober driver, who was taking several drunken crewmembers home, did not have a valid license. Joshua T. Wood, 26, was cited for driving while license suspended.
Theft, July 20 — A woman who saw a pretty green traffic cone and filched it because she was enamored of its bright fluorescent color was contacted by officers and ordered to return the cone to its rightful owner. The victim attempted to placate the thief by offering her an orange traffic cone instead. She refused, though she readily accepted the pretty green cone when he relented and offered to let her keep it.
Theft, July 22 — A pickup which was allegedly stolen during the night was found in the bay near Westward Seafoods, having apparently been driven first into a ditch, then out of the ditch and across the roadway, and finally down an embankment and into the water. Under investigation.
Suspicious person, July 22 — An enraged family man spending the evening on the beach began roundly cursing a young woman who was also enjoying the evening and whose dogs had wandered as close as 150 feet from his wife and child. The woman reported the incident in case the enraged family man gave an encore performance.
Drunk disturbance, July 23 — Bar employee reported a drunken patron had instigated a fight with another customer and had then proclaimed her “Satan” when she ordered him to leave the facility. An officer contacted the inebriate and advised him he would be arrested if he returned to the bar.

Assistance rendered, July 25 — Airline personnel requested a walk-through at the airport, which was full of inebriates who might well be denied the opportunity to board their flights.

Animal, July 28 — Caller reported having been attacked by a bald eagle while standing, fortuitously, just outside the clinic.
I can’t wait to read them all…it actually makes me kind of miss the booze sodden place. Brings back many memories of my own escapades at the Unisea Inn which may have well caused me to be an item in the now famous blotter. I never was an Elbow Room patron being on the wrong side of the bridge and myself not being proficient with a blade made that venue just a bit out of my territory. In those halcyon daze that’s all there was (plus Carl’s or the AC Store where you could get an overpriced bottle if you wanted to drink alone all by yourself)
bravo Sgt. Shockley…BRAVO!
