Alaska State Troopers have said multiple recent incidents in Bristol Bay have been alcohol-related.

Even Brandon, 25, was arrested in Dillingham March 8 for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol after someone reported that he could be drunk driving. Lindsay Sifsof, 26, was a passenger and received a misdemeanor citation for violating her conditions of release for a prior DUI by consuming alcohol.

Neil Nelson, 29, could be charged with felony assault for a March 12 incident in Aleknagik. Nelson allegedly entered an Elder's residence and got into a physical altercation. Both were injured, and Nelson was taken to the hospital for his injuries, then arrested after he was released. Because Nelson has been convicted of assault twice, this charge would be a felony.

Troopers said Nelson was intoxicated when he entered the home, and that alcohol was a significant factor in the incident.
