Saturday, Dec. 29

9:55 p.m. Police were dispatched to a home north of Wing Point Way after someone called 911, said “hi” and then hung up. When officers arrived they were greeted by a woman who immediately started yelling that she was not drunk. The woman continued to yell so much that it was difficult for officers to understand the situation. Eventually, officers were able to discern that the woman was complaining that her husband bent her right wrist back to stop her from turning the volume up on the radio. Officers could smell alcohol on the woman as she yelled.

When they spoke with the husband, he told them that the couple had dinner in Seattle and he didn’t notice how much his wife had been drinking. The husband said when they arrived home, his wife suddenly got angry and began playing the radio loudly. They argued over the volume of the radio, and at one point he pushed her hand away from the volume.

Officers also spoke to the couple’s daughter who told them that her mother started yelling for no reason and screaming that she wasn’t drunk as she marched through the house.

The woman then told officers that her husband had to pay for everything that he had done. She said that she previously had to go to jail for something that was not her fault, and now it was his turn.

Officers could not find any signs of an assault. The husband agreed to go to a hotel that night.
