The children were playing at a birthday party and crossed into the neighbor’s yard, at which point the neighbor told them to “Get the (expletive) off my property.” The host of the kids’ party went over to talk to the neighbor.

2:32 p.m. Attempted fraud was reported by a Bainbridge man, after he discovered that a check for $3,500 sent to him from the “Peoples National Bank” of Nicaragua was a counterfeit. The man said he had responded to an email offering the man $200 if he cashed a check from Nicaragua. He agreed to the but discovered the check was a forgery when he took it to his bank. The man told police that he understood he should “probably never do this again.” The case was recorded.


7:45 p.m. A Bainbridge driver lost control of his Toyota while attempting to turn from Lafayette Avenue onto Euclid Avenue. The vehicle rolled once and landed on its wheels, leaving two gouges in the roadway. The driver suffered scrapes to an arm and shoulder. He admitted to taking the corner too fast and was cited for negligent driving.


2:29 a.m. An 18-year-old woman was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center after apparently overdosing on alcohol while camping at Bainbridge High School during a “senior sleepover.” The girl was unconscious when aid arrived and was having trouble breathing unaided. She was intubated and ventilated during transport. Friends of the girl said that she had taken five shots of alcohol and smoked marijuana on an empty stomach. They denied knowing where the drugs and alcohol had come from.


11:14 a.m. A Bainbridge driver said she was reaching for an iPod in her purse when her Toyota Highlander veered off Eagle Harbor Drive and slammed into a power pole. The power pole was badly damaged, causing cable and power lines to hang low over the roadway. A Puget Sound Energy crew cut cables away from the pole, interrupting service to one residence. The driver was cited for inattention to driving.
