Bainbridge blotter | Drinking with the in-laws

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


11:44 a.m. A 39-year-old Indianola man in a Subaru Legacy station wagon was stopped by police near Agatewood Road and Highway 305 after he was caught on police radar going 73 mph in a 50 mph zone near Day Road.

Police followed and saw the man swerving “well over the white fog line.”

The man smelled of alcohol and had glassy eyes when approached by an officer.

He said he did not have his license or registration with him, just his phone and a water bottle.

The man told police he had been drinking at an in-law’s place earlier.

After several attempts at a breath test — an officer believed he was trying to outsmart the device — police were able to get a reading of .103.

The driver was arrested and booked into Kitsap County Jail without bail due to earlier DUI arrests.
