FAIRBANKS - Fairbanks police arrested a 56-year-old woman accused of firing at a man outside her home.
The man told police he tried to intervene when he saw one woman beating another in the front yard early Thursday. The authorities said that prompted Christine Babich to go inside, fetch a pistol and shoot at the man who ran down the street and called for help.
The authorities arrived and established a boundary around the house. But police said Babich did not surrender until they got a search warrant and sent a remote-operated vehicle into the place.
Babich is charged with assault.
