The Ax Man

FAIRBANKS — A Fairbanks man who was being kicked out for causing a disturbance at Walmart last week allegedly took a hatchet from inside his coat and began swinging it wildly.

The store manager who reported the incident told Fairbanks police he did not feel threatened when an intoxicated man began yelling and swinging an ax “wildly at arm’s length” but was concerned about the safety of the customers, according to a criminal complaint filed in court. The man struck a wall with the ax and then left the store in a taxi that he was then kicked out of, the manager told police.

Fairbanks police arrested Justin Ray Tonelli, 27, a few minutes later at Fred Meyer. He smelled strongly of alcohol and was so intoxicated he was unable to stand up unaided, police said. The Walmart manager signed a citizen’s arrest form. Tonelli is being held at Fairbanks Correctional Center on charges of misdemeanor reckless endangerment and criminal mischief. Bail is set at $3,000.
