Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.
Sunday, Aug. 19
8:37 p.m. Police responded to a call from a Winslow area marina where a man was beating a woman on a boat.
The man initially wouldn’t allow police to board the boat or let them talk to the woman inside. Police could detect that the man and woman had been drinking that evening.
Once police were able to make contact with the woman, they found her crying and “near hysteria.”
Police separated the couple and spoke to the man outside, and the woman inside the boat. The man kept opening the sliding door on the boat to hear what the woman was telling police. She told police she was not sure how much she should tell them. The man frequently stuck his head through the door and yelled at the woman.
The woman told police that the two had been drinking at a local bar and that when her boyfriend drinks Jack Daniels he turns into a “maniac.” He became angry because another man at the bar had looked at her.
She told police that the man grabbed her by the hair and bashed her head on the fly bridge.
Police discovered that the man had a protection order against him that was filed by the woman. He was arrested and booked on $40,000 bail. As he was being led away, police say he “snarled” at the woman.
