North Pole man in court for charging cars with a sledgehammer

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - In the same court room a North Pole man was arraigned on three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief. According to charging documents, Troopers received reports on November 26 that a man, later identified as Sheldon Adams, had shown threatening behavior by nearly causing three accidents and blocking people from driving off.

The report states that Adams then brandished a sledgehammer and charged at the vehicles. Troopers were unable to locate Adams at the time.

Two days later Troopers received a similar report where Adams had broken a rear window. Troopers were able to arrest Adams and all four victims positively identified him.

Adams is currently in custody at Fairbanks Correctional Center. Adams also entered a not guilty plea Wednesday and his case will stay with Judge Harbison, which oversaw his arraignment. His pre-trail hearing is scheduled to take place January 17 at 1:30 and his jury trail is scheduled for the week of February 4.
