The Bainbridge Island Fire Department was called to provide medical aid to the mother. The daughter told police she argued with her mother over a cell phone bill and her mother tried to take her cell phone away from her, scratching her arm in the process. She told police that she got "really super angry with her." She admitted to striking her mother during the confrontation.

Further investigation revealed a wallet in the daughter's room. The daughter denied it was hers. However, her ID was found in the wallet along with a spoon and a used syringe. The items were later tested at the police station and showed the presence of heroin.

The daughter was arrested for assault and the possession of drug paraphernalia.
