Just before midnight on Friday, the police in Troms moved out by helicopter to deal with a problematic man on Karlsøy north of Tromsø.

The man made threats, used violence, drove a stolen car without a valid driver’s license, and was driving under the influence. He was also in possession of drugs, the Troms Police District announced.

“There are several victims in the case,” operations manager Karl Erik Thomassen told NTB.

The man in his 30s has been arrested, and the police have questioned witnesses.

“Ferries were not an option at night, and people who live there are entitled to the same police protection as people who live in more central areas. When it came to such serious actions, we prioritized providing the police service,” Thommasen said while explaining why the police used a helicopter.
