The Juneau Police Department arrested two men in a blue truck after receiving a report of erratic driving on Egan Drive at about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, a JPD release stated.

Police located the truck on Glacier Highway near Jordan Avenue and attempted to pull it over; however, the vehicle did not stop, the release stated. It drove onto Jordan Avenue, hitting a guard rail on the Trout Street Bridge before coming to a stop.

Driving the truck was 40-year-old Anchorage resident Bernard Jordan. He was arrested and lodged without bail at Lemon Creek Correctional Center on charges of driving while intoxicated, refusal to submit to a chemical test, driving with a revoked license, failure to stop at the direction of a peace officer in the first degree and three counts of reckless endangerment.

An intoxicated passenger, 40-year-old Anchorage resident Willie Pointer, was arrested for disorderly conduct after refusing to leave the truck when officers impounded it, according to the release. He was lodged at LCCC on $500 bail.
