A fisherman is accused of commandeering a taxi and making multiple attempts to drive it -- and the driver -- off a bridge.

James Nulph of Santa Cruz, California was arraigned Friday at the Unalaska court house on three felony charges and three misdemeanors.

Police say after refusing to pay his taxi fare, Nulph tried three times to turn the steering wheel to force the cab into the water.

The arraignment was delayed a day because Nulph was too intoxicated for the hearing Thursday.

Present at the hearing was an alleged victim, a taxi driver for Swan Taxi.

Icy roads across Amaknak and Unalaska islands caused a rare traffic jam Monday morning, but cold weather wasn't to blame for an accident involving a rolled SUV near Captains Bay Road over the weekend.

According to Public Safety Director Mike Holman, the male driver of the maroon 2004 Dodge Durango was intoxicated when he drove off the road, crashed and flipped his car. The driver was the sole occupant of the vehicle at the time of the accident. He was treated for minor injuries and then arrested for DUI.
