• Jesse Ahgook Katairoak Sr., 53, of Fairbanks, was charged with third-degree assault, third-degree weapons misconduct, first-degree promoting contraband and five counts of fourth-degree drugs misconduct, all felonies, on June 14 after a caller reported Katairoak pointed a gun at his ex-girlfriend. The woman told Alaska State Troopers that Katairoak said he was going to shoot her and then himself, and was sleeping in his truck down the road. Troopers contacted Katairoak in his Chevrolet Avalanche at Peat’s Pond Wildlife Area. Katairoak said he didn’t have a gun and denied assaulting the woman. Troopers searched Katairoak’s truck and found nine hydrocodone/acetaminophen pills prescribed to another person, a .38 caliber Smith & Wesson revolver, four oxycodone pills, six alprazolam pills and an unspecified amount of methamphetamine. Fairbanks Correctional Center personnel found cocaine on Katairoak’s person during a body search.
