Multiple charges

Chaz N. Carroll, 23, of Anchorage, was charged with third degree assault and reckless endangerment June 30 after Fairbanks police stopped him near Cold Spot Feeds for active arrest warrants. One officer parked behind Carroll’s pickup truck while another parked in front of it, according to charging documents. The passenger and Carroll appeared to be struggling over the gear shift and the engine was revving, the tires were squealing and the truck was jerking like it was trying to move with the brake on. The officer parked in front of Carroll drew his weapon because he feared he would be run over. Carroll fled on foot and was detained after a brief foot chase. Carroll’s passenger told police she had to fight with him to get his foot off the gas pedal and to put the truck in park.
