Bainbridge blotter | DUI to the max

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


10:50 a.m. A 54-year-old Bremerton woman driving a 2006 Dodge was backing up in the parking lot near the McDonald’s on High School Road when she struck a parked but unoccupied car, a 2009 Ford bus, the owner of which is unknown.

A report was filed.


12:17 p.m. A 51-year-old Bremerton man was arrested for driving under the influence. He was reported by a Poulsbo woman and found “slumped over” in a silver Subaru northbound on Highway 305. The woman had said he seemed “out of it” and smelled of marijuana.

Police immediately noted the man’s red face, watery eyes and that he was drooling slightly. His speech was slurred to the point of being incomprehensible.

He admitted to having had three drinks earlier and subsequently performed poorly during a field sobriety test, during which time police detected the smell of alcoholic beverages about him.

He was arrested for DUI and subsequently blew a .330 on the breathalyzer test. He was taken to the hospital because of his dangerously high BAC and, once cleared, booked into the Kitsap County Jail.

Bail was set at $5,000 as he had no prior arrests.
