Bainbridge blotter | Customer 86'd from bar, 'stands his ground'

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

Wednesday, July 3

7:20 p.m. Officers responded to a domestic dispute near Pleasant Beach. A married couple were arguing and agreed to separate for the night to cool down.

Thursday, July 4

12:23 a.m. A man was asked to leave the bar at Isla Bonita. He did, but hung out in front of the bar for the next couple hours. Eventually, another man assaulted the ejected patron outside.

A third man intervened and was knocked down. Officers arrived after the fight and were unable to find the man who started it. The ejected patron was intoxicated and kept telling officers that he was assaulted for “standing his ground.”

He did not provide any information about his attacker, rather, continually told officers that he was tough from years of playing ice hockey. Other patrons at the bar could only give basic descriptions of the fight, but could not identify the attacker.

9:44 a.m. A woman living on Fletcher Bay Road reported that, though she locked her car the previous night, she found it that morning with all the windows rolled down and the sun roof open.

3:07 p.m. A volunteer at the July 4 fair in Winslow reported that his backpack containing his checkbook, motorcycle keys and a computer was stolen. The volunteer placed the backpack in some bushes behind his booth on Winslow Way.

Friday, July 5

9:20 a.m. A bicycle was stolen from a business on Eagle Harbor Drive. It was valued at $700.
