A 21-year-old Ketchikan man faces charges of driving under the influence of marijuana after he was contacted by Alaska State Troopers just after midnight Saturday morning.
According to the online troopers dispatch, the man was parked in the lot of a closed business in Saxman when troopers contacted him. He was arrested and later released.
A 16-year-old girl was in the vehicle, as well, and was passed out from drinking alcohol. According to troopers, she was taken to PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center for treatment, and later was released to a guardian.
Troopers are investigating this incident, and have sent information to the District Attorney’s Office for review.
