Trooper find stranded man, place him under arrest

Posted: December 6, 2013 - 6:47am

FAIRBANKS — A Fairbanks area man stranded on a snowmobile trip was found in good condition but not in good standing with the law.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (http://bit.ly/1d1d6C7) reports Alaska State Troopers arrested 52-year-old Joseph Gauthier on charges of violating conditions of his release on a pending criminal case.

Troopers took a call at 12:35 a.m. Wednesday that Gauthier was stranded east of Fairbanks. He had called a friend to say he had run out of gas. The friend called troopers.

Searchers found Gauthier two hours later. An officer says Gauthier was cold, tired, in good health and “highly intoxicated.”

A breath alcohol test indicated a level above the legal limit for driving. Gauthier was charged with two counts of violating release conditions.

Gauthier remained jailed Thursday at Fairbanks Correctional Center.
