POLICE BLOTTER

Bainbridge Police reported the following incidents:

APRIL 12

8 a.m. A Bainbridge man said he was attempting to park his Winnebago in his driveway when its brakes either locked up or failed and the RV collided with his garage. The impact knocked out the supporting rafters and the roof came to rest on top of the RV.

9 a.m. A fiberglass dinosaur head was reported vandalized at a High School Road property. The cartoon-like dino head and the 10-foot-tall pole it was mounted to were knocked over. The dinosaur sustained damage to its nose, and had dirt inside its head. The owner estimated that it would take $20 of her time to restore the sculpture. No suspects.

9:02 a.m. A Bainbridge cyclist called 911 after being threatened by a motorist on Grow Avenue. He said he had been pedaling south toward WInslow Way when a truck drove up behind him at a high speed. The cyclist said he put his hand out in a “stop” motion to make sure driver saw him. The truck passed the cyclist and then pulled over. The driver got out, and in a speech laced with profanity told the cyclist that he had better get out of the way next time or he would run him over. The cyclist said he responded to the driver in kind, even dropping the “F-bomb.” The driver was described as being a balding man in his 50s, with a red beard and a pot belly. The cyclist recorded the truck’s license plate number but a search by police returned no record. No suspects.

APRIL 13

8:55 a.m. A Bainbridge driver traveling north on West Port Madison Road was forced off a steep embankment after an oncoming vehicle crossed the centerline. The victim’s car lodged against a stump and offending driver did not stop.

11:18 a.m. A Beck Road resident said his neighbor had reportedly chased a suspicious person from his driveway at about 1 a.m. The resident believed the suspect was trying to steal tools from he had left in his truck. The neighbor was unable to supply a description of the suspect, but said the he had fled toward Pleasant Beach Drive. No leads.

APRIL 14

1:31 p.m. A Bainbridge driver in a Ford Explorer pulled out of the Rolling Bay Jiffy Mart parking lot and collided with a VW Jetta. The driver of the Ford was cited for failure to yield.
