Bainbridge blotter | Burning bridges

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


2:45 a.m. Police were called to a home to respond to a possible suicidal overdose.

Upon the arrival of paramedics, it was determined not to be an attempted suicide, but instead a problem with the consumption of the prescription drug Methadone by a 55-year-old Bainbridge Island woman.

She was transported to a Seattle hospital for treatment.

The woman had been staying with friends after she “burned her bridges” with family members in Alabama because of her addiction.

She had been living on Bainbridge for about a year, the homeowner said, and was addicted to prescription painkillers, having been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia years before.

Later, police were called to the ferry terminal to investigate a “confused elderly female” in a hospital gown. It was the same woman from the previous call.

The woman gave “rambling and confused” answers to police questions.

All agreed the best solution was to return the woman to the hospital for treatment.
