• Scott David Ingram, 44, of Fairbanks, was charged with fourth-degree assault April 14 after he reported a woman was causing a disturbance at his home. Alaska State Troopers responded and spoke to the woman, who said she was on conditions of release for a criminal case and was required to stay at the home for 12 hours a day. The woman said Ingram became angry with her for no reason, and she grabbed a stick and a golf club to protect herself. Ingram took the golf club away from her, followed her upstairs, pinned her face down and began spanking her, according to charging documents. The woman hit her head on a dresser after Ingram grabbed her hair during the struggle.
Ingram told troopers he told the woman to leave and she refused. He took the golf club from her and threw it out the window. She locked him out of the house and he crawled through a window. Ingram said he spanked the woman after telling her that if she was going to act like a child, he’d treat her like a child, according to the charges.
