Bainbridge blotter | Meth smoker calls it a day

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

Sunday, Sept. 30

3:29 p.m. Police responded to a verbal domestic disturbance. Neighbors heard a loud argument from within the home and heard someone yell, “Don’t hit me.” A woman then took her kids and left. Police were able to contact her when she returned later that day.

The woman told police that nothing had happened earlier. She said that she called 911 on her husband once before and he got arrested. She also said that it was a “big mess” and that she “is not going to do that again.”

While the woman claimed not to know where her husband was, one of her children volunteered that their dad was inside. The woman went inside and returned to tell officers that her husband did not want to speak with them.

With neither party willing to cooperate with police, they left a domestic violence information packet and left the scene.
