Bainbridge blotter | A tale of ancient mariners

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

SUNDAY, APRIL 28

11:06 p.m. A 65-year-old transient previously trespassed from the store was reported to be inside the Bainbridge Safeway, near the deli counter. The man was known to police from prior mental investigation calls.

Upon arrival, police were told by the manager that the man had just left the store and began looking for him.

They were soon called by a nearby hotel, where the man was yelling at the staff and refusing to leave.

Police found the man inside, still berating the staff, who told police the man had been previously trespassed from there as well, and provided a copy of the official notice dated the day before.

Asked if he realized he’d been trespassed from both the store and the hotel, the man said he didn’t care. He was “talking nonsense,” police said, rambling about “ancient mariners” and other strange subjects.

The man was given a copy of the trespass notice, his second, which he immediately tore up. Told to leave, the man got up and rolled his bag to the doorway, where he remained standing, blocking it.

Told he would be arrested if he did not leave, the man said he had no place else to go. Asked again to leave, the man walked back inside and sat down, saying he would wait to be arrested.

He was arrested and transported to the Kitsap County Jail.
