KASILOF, Alaska (AP) — Alaska State Troopers say a 23-year-old Kenai Peninsula man made fake 911 calls to divert officers as they pursued his pickup truck and tried to arrest him.
Clayton Nelson of Kasilof (kah-SEE-lawf) is charged with felony eluding, reckless driving, assault and terroristic threatening. He’s also charged with driving with a revoked license and violating conditions of his release.
Troopers say they spotted Nelson Saturday afternoon and stop him on an outstanding felony warrant from an assault case.
Troopers arrested Nelson.
Trooper investigators say they later determined Nelson had made false 911 calls.
Nelson is being held without bail at the Wildwood Pretrial Facility in Kenai, southwest of Anchorage.
A message left with the Kenai public defender’s office was not immediately returned.
