Talkeetna Man Arrested on Domestic Violence Charges

Monday, October 27, 2014

On Sunday night, Alaska State Troopers arrested a Talkeetna man on domestic violence charges.  Troopers responded to a disturbance at a residence on G Street in East Talkeetna at 11:41 pm.   Troopers say that Charles Hager, age 30, caused injury to another resident of the house, specifically a cut tongue.  Hager is also accused of breaking glass items in the house and stabbing the wall with a knife.  Hager was arrested at the scene and charged with two counts of Assault in the Fourth Degree and one count of Criminal Mischief in the Fifth Degree.  He was taken to the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility and held without bail.

Megan Peters, spokeswoman for the Alaska State Troopers, says that multiple counts of assault can occur for a variety of reasons, and that placing someone in fear of physical harm and causing injury can be treated as separate charges.  On Tuesday morning, the Alaska State Troopers provided additional information.  Megan Peters says the charges are not a case of intimate partner violence, and that domestic violence can apply to any situation where people are cohabitating.
