Bellingham fugitive arrested in Alaska

The Associated Press

JUNEAU, Alaska — Police in Juneau have arrested a man wanted in Washington state.

Police just before 8 p.m. Sunday were called to the Driftwood Hotel to provide help in removing five intoxicated people from a room.

Police arrested 49-year-old Russell Bond when officers learned he was wanted on a warrant from Bellingham.

He remained in custody Tuesday.

The Juneau Empire reports Bond was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon in a 2009 case. Whatcom County deputy prosecutor Dona Bracke says Bond was convicted of cutting a person on the neck in a fistfight that escalated into a knife fight. The other person required 70 sutures to close the wound.

Bond served a six-month jail sentence and was required to report to the Washington State Department of Corrections offices for a year of monitoring.
