A Kodiak man is facing charges after driving with a revoked license, according to court documents.
Dwayne Gatter, 47, is charged with a misdemeanor for driving with a revoked license, three counts of misdemeanor violation of conditions of release, and felony concealing the identity of vehicle.
A Kodiak police officer was patrolling the area around Mylark Street and Selief Lane on Feb. 13 at 10:30 p.m. when he observed a green Jeep SUV. The officer recognized the driver as someone who was on conditions of release for driving with a revoked license and driving under the influence.
According to the documents, Gatter still has a revoked license. In addition, his conditions of release prohibit him from driving a motor vehicle.
The officer activated his emergency lights and followed Gatter, who “sped up” and entered his driveway. After Gatter got out of his car, the officer told him to stop and arrested him.
Following an investigation, the officer discovered that the license plate number on the Jeep that Gatter was driving belonged to a 1999 Chevrolet Astro van.
The police returned to Gatter’s home and found the front plates on the Jeep to have a different number than the back plates previously recorded by the officer.
Through a search in the Alaska Public Safety Information network, police found that the front plate number expired in January 2017.
Gatter has previously been convicted of bribery and tampering with a witness.
