• Jordan Duane Halden, 33, of Fairbanks, was charged with driving under the influence and three counts of violating conditions of release Aug. 4 after Alaska State Troopers responded to a report of a possibly intoxicated driver who wrecked his SUV at 5 mile Chena Hot Springs Road. According to charging documents, the caller told troopers the man seemed to be under the influence of drugs, said his name was Jordan, had slurry speech and kept falling asleep while talking. The caller dropped the man off at Curry’s Corner. When troopers arrived, someone in another vehicle reported seeing a confused man staggering in the road nearby. Halden was contacted on the Old Steese Highway. He did not have any identification, was disoriented, appeared drowsy and was drooling and fumbling with his clothes, according to the charges. A records check showed Halden was on conditions of release for a 2016 felony theft conviction, a 2018 misdemeanor theft conviction and a pending 2019 theft case. Halden had a partially opened eyeglass case in which used syringes were plainly visible.

The scene of the vehicle accident was located and troopers found a green Subaru that appeared to have left the roadway without braking, according to the charges.
