Bainbridge blotter | 'Just arrest me'

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

Sunday, Oct. 7

2:01 a.m. Police pulled over a driver for erratic driving on Fletcher Bay Road and New Brooklyn Road. The driver said his driving was poor because his passenger was vomiting out the door. Police noticed the smell of alcohol and vomit. The driver failed roadside sobriety tests and then refused to take a breath test. He was arrested for DUI. Later breath tests at the police station indicated a 1.28 and 1.48 blood alcohol level. A bong, glass pipes and marijuana were discovered in the driver’s vehicle as well.

12:19 p.m. A resident on Old Mill Road reported that he had twice found human waste near a shed on his property. The resident noted that his daughter hangs out with people of “questionable character” and they might be the source of the leftovers.

Wednesday, Oct. 10

11:49 a.m. Police assisted with an injured employee at a facility on Day Road. A delivery truck backed into a garbage container next to a loading dock. The collision caused a domino effect down multiple containers. A worker was caught in between two dumpsters as they smashed together.

1:10 p.m. An islander reported a credit card number was fraudulently used to make purchases in Texas.

9:22 p.m. A woman backed her car down an embankment and drove it into the front yard of a residence on Yeomalt Point Drive. Police suspected she had been drinking. She said she had two glasses of wine at 5 p.m. Later, she said she had a few.

The woman agreed to take sobriety tests. She was unsteady as she walked and stood and failed multiple tests. When it came to the breath test, she refused and began arguing with the officer. She told police to arrest her.

Police arrested the woman for DUI. When officers asked the woman if she understood her rights, she responded with an unpleasant and obscene suggestion. She then said she was a good person and continually asked how police could do this to a person like her.

At the police station, the woman said she had two glasses of wine and a beer at a bar in Winslow. She then argued with police and said they had no proof she had been drinking. She began to yell, refused to sign any DUI paperwork and blamed police for what was happening to her. When asked to quiet down, she replied, “What are you going to do about it?”

The woman then again refused to take a breath test. She put her hands in front of her and said, “Just arrest me.” Police complied and transported her to the Kitsap County Jail.
