FAIRBANKS - A North Pole man accused of pointing a gun at a police officer and evading authorities is facing more charges.
Police say 30-year-old Robert Tyrone Gentleman is charged with failure to stop at the direction of a peace officer and driving with a suspended license.
Police say they attempted to pull over Gentleman for a broken tail light in late August.
As the officer approached the vehicle, the car sped off.
The officer found the empty vehicle a short way up the road, the passenger side seat soaked in what appeared to be alcohol.
Local law enforcement agencies started looking for Gentleman after he allegedly pointed a gun at a University of Alaska Fairbanks police officer who tried to pull him over.
Gentlemen is incarcerated at Fairbanks Correctional Center awaiting trial for numerous felony charges, including drugs misconduct, robbery, assault and weapons misconduct.
