FAIRBANKS, Alaska -- A Fairbanks assistant district attorney has pleaded not guilty to charges of driving under the influence of drugs after being arrested twice within a week.
David Carlson entered the pleas to the two DUI counts Monday during his arraignment in Fairbanks District Court. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner says his attorney, Tom Temple, declined comment.
Court documents allege Carlson was under the influence of prescription drugs both times he was arrested. The first was on Feb. 15 after his truck went into a ditch. The second was on Sunday, when witnesses told Fairbanks police that Carlson ran a red light and collided with a car on the Johansen Expressway.
