Bainbridge blotter | Parking lot rage

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


11:18 a.m. A 32-year-old UPS driver claimed he was assaulted by a Bainbridge Island couple while parked in the loading zone outside the Safeway grocery store unloading boxes.

The driver said a man, 67, of Bainbridge, came up to him and asked him to move the truck so he could get out of a nearby parking spot. The truck driver said he would move as soon as he was done unloading the boxes.

The man asked him to move right away and the driver said no, as he was legally parked in the loading zone.

The man asked him to back up a bit so he could leave and the driver said he was not allowed, by company rules, to back the truck up.

The man became angry, the UPS driver said, and began shouting and cursing at him, threatening to call the police. The driver told the man to go ahead and call the police.

The driver said the angry man jumped up into the truck and tried to grab him, then spit in his face. Then, the driver said, a female passenger, 41, of Bainbridge, grabbed his jacket and pulled him out of the truck.

They both then got into a silver Prius and left, the license plate of which the UPS driver noted, then called the police.

When asked later, the older man admitted to having an argument with the UPS driver, but denied having spit on him.

A report was filed with the county prosecutor.
