No bail for Fairbanks man with history of assault

No bail today for the Fairbanks man charged with felony assault after allegedly beating and biting his wife.

51-year-old Ivan Bolden faces numerous charges after police found the two fighting in downtown Fairbanks.

Bolden, who has a long history of assaults, was due to be arraigned in Fairbanks District Court yesterday; however, Troopers said he was combative and unable to make that proceeding.

Today during his arraignment, Bolden repeatedly interrupted the Judge, stating there was evidence that he did not assault his wife; he then threw his papers when he was asked to stop speaking.

Bolden asked the Judge about representation saying, "I just stated I will represent myself, Can you set the bail hearing?"
