Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


8:30 a.m. A Bainbridge woman, 61, was driving west on Blakely Avenue in a 2005 Honda Pilot when she slowed to watch a vehicle in front of her make a U-turn.

The woman did not see that the driver had turned around due to a fallen tree that was blocking the roadway. The Honda driver kept going and hit the tree.

7 p.m. Someone poured motor oil into a toilet in the restrooms at Waterfront Park and caused the restrooms to flood.

Police found a five-quart container of Castor GTX motor oil by the dumpster.


9:48 p.m. A 59-year-old transient walked into a restaurant on High School Road and wanted someone to call 911 so he could report an assault.

The man said a 72-year-old acquaintance had come to his camp in the woods nearby, and he said he invited the man into his tent to get out of the rain.

The guest refused to leave, however, so the transient hit the elderly man with a frying pan, and then hit him again on the head with a coffee pot. The man claimed the unwanted guest had hit him on the leg.

An employee at the restaurant said the man who said he was assaulted was visibly intoxicated when he came in.

Police talked to a worker at a nearby gas station, who said the pair had been there 15 minutes earlier and said the alleged assailant had told him the transient hit him after he gave him a beer and an argument ensued.

Both men decided they did not want to press charges.
