Bainbridge blotter | Agent of intoxication
Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.
Friday, June 7
8:43 a.m. A man living on Point Monroe Drive became angry at his neighbor, insisting that he did not have proper permits for work on his property.
The man then stood in front of a truck that had arrived to deliver a load of sand and prevented it from completing its delivery. He then laid down in the road where the pile of sand was to be dumped. Officer’s checked with city employees who verified that the work was permitted and legal.
The man was notified and left the scene.
9:18 a.m. A couple on Meadowmeer Circle reported that jewelry had been stolen from their home. Ten items of jewelry — including gold earrings, necklaces and rings — were missing.
4:33 p.m. A man on Rose Avenue said a window of his home was shot out by a high-powered pellet gun. The man believed that pellets had been shot at his residence before. While mowing his lawn one month ago, something hit his hand and drew blood.
Then, a couple weeks later, his dog jumped and yelped as if something had hit and stung it, but the man could not find a wound.
The man noted that he, along with other neighbors, have had an ongoing dispute with a neighbor over their barking dogs. He didn’t know if it had anything to do with the shootings, but felt he should report it.

7:08 p.m. A man called 911 while following a car driving erratically. Police caught up with the driver and the reporting party on Avalon Lane.
The driver told police that she was a federal agent and only had three drinks. She said on a scale of one to 10, 10 being very intoxicated, she was at about five. The driver failed roadside sobriety tests and was arrested. She requested an attorney.
A breath test taken at the station showed results of .313. The county jail would not take the driver because of the high results of the breath test, so she was observed by officers at the station for three hours and then released to her family.
