Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter:

Monday, Aug. 18

9:41 a.m. Officers were called out to a hotel after an employee made a threatening gesture to her supervisor.

The hotel was full that day and guests crowded in the breakfast area. When the supervisor noticed the employee was using her phone instead of working, she asked the employee to go to the housekeeping supervisor to begin another task.

The employee responded, “Make me.”

The supervisor repeated the direction, but the employee stepped forward and challenged the supervisor in a threatening manner.

The employee was then told police would be called if she did not leave the supervisor’s office.

Tuesday, Aug. 19

11:16 a.m. A Bainbridge business contacted police after an angry former employee began contacting managers and staff at the business.

Along with confronting his former colleagues in public, the man was sending emails to the company email address with expletives in the subject line.

When officers contacted the man at his home, the man reportedly said, “I thought that might get a reaction.”

He admitted to sending the emails and said he was still angry with his former employer and managers for letting him go.

The business employer told police that the company had let the man go about 1½ years ago for performance issues and coming into work after having been drinking. The problems had gone on for about six months before he was fired.
