ANVIK, Alaska (AP) - A 27-year-old man from the southwest Alaska village of Anvik escaped custody after an arrest Jan. 1 but was arrested two days later.

The handcuffs on one wrist may have given him away.

Alaska State Troopers say an Anvik village public safety officer took a complaint on New Year’s Day that the man was driving a snowmobile while intoxicated.

After field sobriety tests, the officer arrested the man on suspicion of DUI and driving with a revoked license.

Troopers say the man was placed in a holding facility but escaped and fled by snowmobile 23 miles to the village of Grayling.

Troopers obtained a warrant for the man’s arrest, and on Saturday night, found him hiding in a Grayling home with the handcuffs still attached.

He was jailed in Bethel.
