Jamie A. Noonan, 46, of Fairbanks, was charged with fourth-degree assault May 17 for reportedly assaulting her brother during an argument over coffee. According to charging documents, Noonan yelled, kicked a door, pushed a dog and hit her brother in the back with a grill scraping tool. Noonan’s brother had a 6 inch- to

8-inch-cut on his back. A witness told Alaska State Troopers that the siblings argued because Noonan put a nonmicrowavable mug in the microwave oven.

Multiple charges

• Mitchell Louis Forzley, 40, of Fairbanks, was charged with fourth-degree assault and two counts of violating conditions of release May 18, after Fairbanks police responded to a report of a man chasing people with a sharp object at 2:26 a.m. near the Boatel bar. According to charging documents, Forzley approached two women as they walked from the Boatel to R.J.’s Lounge. The women said Forzley was talking about sex, wasn’t making any sense and made them uncomfortable. Forzley then got a stick and told one of the women he was going to slit her throat as he broke the stick over his knee. The women walked into R.J.’s and a male customer there kept Forzley away from the women until police arrived. Forzley fled on foot but was taken into custody after a short chase. 

• Zachary Monroe Brummet, 25, of North Pole, was charged with fourth-degree assault and fourth-degree weapons misconduct May 19, after Brummet and his wife called Alaska State Troopers separately to report the other had a gun. Troopers responded and the woman said Brummet locked her in the garage, pushed her down, injured her knee and bruised her shoulder before pointing a rifle at her. The woman denied having a weapon at any time, according to charging documents.

Brummet told troopers the woman had an AR-15 and a 9 mm handgun in the garage and had gone outside and fired the handgun once into the air. Brummet said he loaded his .308 rifle and the woman tried to enter the house but did not have a gun with her. Brummet said he was unsure of the order of what happened due to his level of intoxication, according to the charges. Brummet registered a breath-alcohol content of 0.183.

Troopers found an Aero Precision rifle and a Sig Sauer P320 pistol in the garage. The pistol’s magazine had been removed and was about 15 feet away from the gun. Inside the home, troopers found a loaded .22 LR Marlin rifle and a loaded .308 rifle. Troopers seized all firearms in the home and put them in safekeeping.
