12:37 p.m. A Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office deputy requested island back-up after pulling over a car with a raging driver on Madison Avenue and Highway 305. The deputy witnessed the driver stop his car in the middle of the road, jump out and run after an SUV. The driver said he was mad because of the SUV’s speed. The driver aggressively complained to the deputy about how police officers drive. Officers discovered that the man has a record of aggressive behavior and prior road rage incidents.
