Bainbridge blotter | ‘I’m going to jail’

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

MONDAY, SEPT. 4

6:54 p.m. Police were called to a home on Twin Pond Road regarding a noise complaint.

The homeowners said that the man having a house built near them was causing too much noise and violating city ordinances regarding what kind of work may be done at what time of day. The situation had, they said, been going on for more than a year, and they’d several times called 911 for assistance.

The man building the house had said the work being done was inside the house and so it did not have to adhere to the regulations his neighbors were referring to.

The homeowners had recorded the work going on and arranged to send a video to police as part of the complaint.

11:58 p.m. A couple visiting Bainbridge from Seattle to attend a party were engaged in a loud domestic dispute outside a Lynwood eatery.

Police were called and found a woman, 27, sitting on a bench and a man, 37, approaching her in an aggressive manner. The responding officers heard him say something to the effect of, “I’m going to jail,” as he neared the woman. They asked him to stop, but he did not.

Fearing for the safety of the woman, one officer caught up to the man and took hold of his wrist so as to lead him away from the woman. The man took out his cell phone and announced he would be recording his interaction with police, which the officers told him he was, of course, permitted to do.

Both people appeared intoxicated, police said. They were slurring their speech and smelled strongly of alcoholic beverages.

The man said he and the woman had been at a work colleague’s party and they’d both been drinking.

He was, police said, belligerent and loud and often used profanity as he told them how the woman had had too much to drink and they’d argued.

Ultimately, the woman was dropped off at the ferry by police and the man stayed with a friend for the night.
