Wasilla man accused of striking troopers with car

ANCHORAGE — Alaska State Troopers say a 26-year-old Wasilla man has been arrested after he struck two troopers with his vehicle.

 

Michael Ingersol was arrested on multiple charges, including assault on troopers, eluding and driving with a license suspended.

Troopers say the two officers drove themselves to a hospital. They were released after treatment for non-debilitating injuries.

According to troopers, Ingersol’s mother called Wednesday evening and said she didn’t want her son at her home.

Troopers say Ingersol was backing out of the driveway and struck the responding officers after they yelled at him to stop. Troopers say Ingersol fled and the officers were unable to catch him.

Troopers say that later that night, Ingersol was arrested after trying to flee from troopers and Wasilla police, and trying to strike them.
