Bainbridge blotter | Love bites

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

Monday, Aug. 6

11:59 a.m. Someone threw eggs at a home on Winslow Way. Eggs were also thrown at the car in front of the home. The homeowner’s dog chased the egg thrower, but the homeowner did not see anyone.

Thursday, Aug. 9

12:43 a.m. Police responded to a verbal dispute on Lynwood Center Road. When officers arrived they found a man in the front driveway of the home with a laundry basket. He said he was moving out, but his girlfriend was going crazy. He said she had been drinking all day and that he last had a drink around 3 p.m.

The man said he became agitated earlier when the girlfriend began affectionately biting him, which he did not like.

The woman had a different story. She said when she returned home, the man was angry. She showed police a number of text messages from the man from throughout the day in which he cursed at her and called her offensive names. The man then left, taking his tools and a flat-screen TV that the woman said belonged to her. On his way out he broke a pot on the porch.

The woman also said that when she returned home she found that someone had defecated on her porch and thought it had been her boyfriend. Police asked the man about it and he was evasive. Police also asked about the TV. The man said it was his and he didn’t want to talk about it.

Police were unable to prove an assault and the man was released.
