Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter:

Monday, May 5

10:44 p.m. A taxi driver called police after he picked up an intoxicated woman from a downtown restaurant. The driver had arrived at the woman’s home to drop her off, but could not get her to leave his vehicle.

When police arrived, the woman was sitting on the floor of the car. She told police that she needed help getting out of the vehicle and was unable to do it herself.

Officers helped her to the foot of the staircase that led to her apartment, but decided based on her intoxication level that she would need to be sent to the hospital as no one else could take care of her overnight.

Sunday, May 4

8:53 p.m. A passerby noticed two vehicles parked at a storage facility had broken windows. One of the vehicles was a travel trailer. The window to the bedroom area of the trailer had been broken out. Nothing inside the vehicle looked to have been damaged, though.

Police found minimal water damage from rain earlier that day.The owner of the trailer estimated that damage would cost $250 in window repairs.

The second vehicle was a FedEx truck. Officers contacted the owner and were told that the broken window was old. It resulted after a tree branch snapped back and hit the window. The storage facility had been notified of the damage to the delivery truck.

Wednesday, April 30

1:44 p.m. Two residents have been in an ongoing dispute over property lines. The quarrel became verbally aggressive after one resident’s dog ran onto the neighbor’s property.

The resident went to retrieve the dog from the neighbor’s yard, when the neighbor began cursing at the resident and threatened to kill his girlfriend.

Later the neighbor told police that he said things in the heat of the moment that were inappropriate.
