• Joshwa Adrian Aldeano Marrero, 34, of Fairbanks, was charged with driving under the influence and fifth-degree criminal mischief Dec. 15. According to charging documents, Alaska State Troopers stopped Marrero after he lost control of his Toyota pickup while turning onto Airport Way, did a 180 into a snow berm and drove away, weaving from side to side across both eastbound lanes. Marrero appeared intoxicated and his truck smelled strongly of marijuana, but troopers were unable to administer field sobriety tests because Marrero did not speak English and an interpreter could not be found. Blood samples were taken at Fairbanks Memorial Hospital for drug and alcohol testing. Marrero allegedly kicked the back door of the trooper vehicle on the way to Fairbanks Correctional Center and broke the door handle.

Quirion allegedly slapped his son about 12 more times, sat on his stomach and strangled him with until his field of vision shrank and he started seeing stars. Quirion released him his son and took both of his phones after he tried to call 911, according to the charges.
