Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


8:04 p.m. Officers from the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, Suquamish and Bainbridge Island police departments responded to a 911 hang-up call at a north end residence.

A couple were involved in a verbal dispute and officers separated them. The man, 53, appeared intoxicated.

The woman, 45, said he drinks too much. He wanted to do something with his boat and was hounding her about the whereabouts of his keys, she said. She did not have his keys, and he eventually took hers from her purse. She wanted them back, so she flung items around while searching for where he hid them. The man got mad, turned over a desk and broke a plate, which prompted the woman to call the police.

She said she went outside and grabbed a pressure washer wand to defend herself if necessary. She also said she “accidentally” pulled the trigger, spraying him in the face. The machine was not running, so the stream was not particularly powerful and the man was not injured.

Police stood by as the woman gathered some belongings and left.
