The following is an article from the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner posted on 3/16/2016 FAIRBANKS, ALASKA ��� A Fairbanks man who allegedly hit and choked his girlfriend on Sunday told Fairbanks police he did it to rid her of an alien, according to a criminal complaint. Daniel Lee Oines, 57, initially told police he ���struck��� the woman, then said he didn���t. ���He clarified his statement by saying that he believed (her) body had been taken over or inhabited by an alien being, whom he referred to as ���the Butcher,��� and was hitting the (woman���s) body to make the Butcher leave,��� the complaint states. Oines is charged with felony second-degree assault and misdemeanor interfering with a domestic violence report. The woman told police she, Oines and a male friend were watching TV in the living room when Oines began to scream at her and accuse her of being inhabited by a foreign entity. She said Oines punched her in the face three times, then forced her onto a love seat and pinned her down. She said Oines put his left forearm on her throat and used his other hand to squeeze her neck until she couldn���t breathe or cry out, according to the complaint. Oines stopped the attack after their friend calmed him down by offering him a cigarette, according to the complaint. The woman tried to call 911 but was unable to speak because she couldn���t catch her breath. Oines grabbed the cellphone but the woman was able to get it back and run to the bathroom.
