Bainbridge blotter | Parking rage

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


11:31 a.m. Police were called to an alleged assault in Lynwood Center.

Upon arriving, they spoke with a 48-year-old Bainbridge man who said his wife, also 48 and also of Bainbridge, had been pushed by a 40-year-old Bainbridge man after they’d gotten into an argument about parking.

The man said the other man had confronted the couple about blocking the driveway to a nearby home with their car and then started filming them with his cell phone. His wife had insisted the man stop recording them and then reached out to grab the other man’s phone when he “smacked [her] on her side, pushing her.”

The woman said she’d been reaching for the man’s phone to see if he was really filming them.

The younger man told the same story, saying he meant to push the woman away and had accidentally smacked her on the side. He said he had not meant for things to escalate as they had.

Police told the couple that they could legally be filmed in public and said that while the other man should obviously not have pushed the woman, she should not have been trying to grab his phone.

All agreed to resolve the matter without further law enforcement involvement.
