Juneau Police say alcohol was a factor in two early morning arrests on New Year’s Day.
Police arrested 25-year-old Anthony Agnes after he allegedly punched a bartender at a Mendenhall Valley bar. According to a JPD press release, the bartender was trying to break up a fight between Agnes and another patron.
Before booking him in jail, police took Agnes to Bartlett Regional Hospital, where he allegedly bit an officer.
He’s facing two counts of assault, including assaulting a police officer.
JPD also arrested 20-year-old Guadalupe Flores for allegedly attacking a security guard who was trying to stop him from breaking into the State Office Building.
Flores faces disorderly conduct and criminal mischief charges, as well as violating his State of Alaska felony probation.
Other New Year’s arrests include an 18-year-old woman for minor consuming and a 50-year-man for being drunk on a licensed premises.
