A Soldotna man is facing six misdemeanor charges after Alaska State Troopers allege he fled from a disturbance on a motorcycle and crashed down the road on Sept. 7.
Troopers responded to a disturbance on Lake Road in Soldotna at about 11:30 p.m. and could hear an argument inside a residence, according to a troopers dispatch.
Bryan Elliott, 44, was leaving the home when troopers arrived and attempted to leave the scene on a motorcycle, but wrecked a short distance down the road. Further investigation revealed Elliott was under the influence of alcohol, in possession of two loaded firearms while intoxicated, in possession of marijuana and without a valid motorcycle operator’s license. Elliott also broke a TV inside the home during the argument, according to the report.
Elliott was arrested on charges of second-degree eluding, fourth-degree misconduct involving weapons, driving under the influence, fourth-degree criminal mischief, no valid operator’s license and sixth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance.
Elliott was arraigned in Kenai District Court on Sept. 8 and released from Wildwood Pretrial Facility on $1,000 bail Monday.
His next court date is Oct. 23.
