Troopers Arrest One after Speeding, Arrest Responding Driver for DUI on Seward

On Sunday, as troopers with the Bureau of Highway Patrol were patrolling the Seward Highway, they observed a 2004 GMC Tahoe speeding near mile 103 of the highway at 1:40 pm. The vehicle was doing 95 miles an hour in a 55 mph zone.

After stopping the vehicle and contacting the driver, identified as 22-year-old Dylan David Fuhs, they found him to be driving with a revoked drivers license.

Fuhs was arrested for Driving with a Revoked Drivers License and Reckless Driving. Fuhs was transported to the Anchorage Jail; where he was remanded with his bail set at $1,750.

Fuhs requested someone pick up his vehicle rather than have it impounded.

One hour later,  at 2:40 pm, a 2002 Mitsubishi Montero arrived at the scene, with a driver for the Tahoe.

Troopers contacted the driver of the Montero and identified him as 23-year-old Patrick Wolverton of Anchorage. Troopers found that Wolverton was driving under the influence of alcohol.

Wolverton was arrested as well on charges of DUI and transported to the Anchorage Jail. He was remanded there with his bail set at $250.
