11:20 p.m. Police arrested an intoxicated man after he yelled at ferry terminal workers. Officers were at the terminal to assist with an abandoned vehicle incident when a ferry worker approached and explained that an intoxicated man had been yelling at him moments earlier and that the man was now walking up the middle of Olympic Drive toward town. Officers caught up to the man. After he identified himself, police found he had two warrants for his arrest, a third-degree driving with a suspended license charge from Kitsap County and a DUI out of Okanogan County. He was arrested and booked at the Kitsap County Jail.
2:38 p.m. An island resident called police after he found a sign post in his yard. The resident explained that he and his neighbor have a no-contact protection order between each other and that he believed it was his neighbor who had violated the order and put the post there. The post had been pulled from the ground. The neighbor stated she was unaware of the incident, though she was having fence work done on her property through her landlord. She also said she and the neighbor do not get along, and she was not surprised he would report something like this during the holidays.
