Soldotna man charged for exposure, mischief

A Soldotna man was arrested after Alaska State Troopers received reports that he was causing a disturbance near Snowflake Street Monday evening in Soldotna. 

 

Randy Wayne Bleazard, 27, was charged with second degree indecent exposure, a class A misdemeanor, criminal mischief, a class C felony, and four counts of misdemeanor assault after the incident. 

During his arraignment Tuesday morning, one of the assault charges was dismissed, however Bleazard still faces three other assault charges and allegations that he exposed himself to two children younger than 16 and caused damage to a Soldotna home in excess of $500. 

According to troopers, Bleazard was nude, jumping on people’s vehicles, breaking windows and assaulting people Monday around 5:30 p.m. when they were called. 

When troopers arrived on scene they found Bleazard standing on top of a silver Dodge truck, according to a complaint and affidavit.  

Bleazard was ordered to the ground but instead accosted the responding trooper by wrapping his leg around the trooper’s leg and refusing to let go, according to the complaint. 

Alaska State Troopers spokesperson Megan Peters said the trooper was not hurt. 

Before the troopers were called, witnesses on the scene said Bleazard had been inside their residence and had been “acting strange” according to the affidavit. 

Bleazard was asked to leave the residence several times before being lured outside by one of the witnesses according to the affidavit. 

After leaving the home, Bleazard began undressing, climbed into a doghouse and took off his pants before using a skateboard to break a window at the residence, according to the affidavit. 

After being arrested and put in the back of a patrol vehicle, troopers reported that Bleazard tried to break a window with his head and teeth and was moved to a vehicle that had bars on the windows. Troopers then found his clothes in a doghouse nearby. 

Bleazard was taken to the Wildwood Pretrial facility after his arrest. 

When asked about the potential involvement of drugs, Peters said the incident was still under investigation.
