Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter:

1:33 a.m. A man drove off in his girlfriend’s car with her dog after the couple had a heated argument. The girlfriend told police he was extremely intoxicated and driving drunk.

He was stopped by Kitsap County units soon after. His friend who was also intoxicated and his girlfriend’s Chihuahua “puppy” were passengers in the car.

The boyfriend was arrested for DUI and a warrant.

Wednesday, May 28

10:27 p.m. Two Harbour Marina liveaboards woke up in the middle of the night to the sound of someone on their boat. The couple live on their 60-foot sailboat with their son.

At the sound of an intruder, the husband came out of the boat to find a man on the dock at another boat. He had unzipped the rear canvas of the boat, but was interrupted by another liveaboard who wanted to know what he was doing.

The man walked away but was intercepted by the husband who indicated that the man had taken a book from the cockpit of his sailboat. The intruder at first denied taking the book, but then gave “How to Lower Your Taxes” back to the liveaboard. The man said he was a college student and was using the book for a paper. The man left before police arrived at the marina.

He was described as in his early 20s, blonde and over 6 feet tall. He wore a blue long-sleeved shirt, jeans and earrings. He also carried a messenger bag and used a bright flashlight when lurking in the boats.
