AST arrested a Fairbanks driver on charges of DUI, Endangering Welfare of a Child I, Assault III and Reckless Driving after troopers responded to a vehicle roll-over at the Tanana Lakes Recreational Area on Tuesday evening.

Troopers responded to the area at 7:35 pm on Tuesday evening after receiving a report of the accident. When they arrived, they found that one person had been injured in the accident. The driver, 35-year-old Marquis Eanes of Fairbanks, was arrested following a preliminary investigation at the scene.
