Bainbridge blotter | Rocky relationship

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


3:29 a.m. A 59-year-old Suquamish man “blacked out” while driving and went into a ditch.

The man was going south on Highway 305 at the time. He said he had not been feeling well during the previous days, and was suffering from a fever, upset stomach and sore throat, though he said he’d gotten a full night’s sleep before driving.

He said he suddenly “blacked out” at the wheel and his car drifted into the oncoming lane and into the ditch running alongside the highway, ultimately hitting with a street sign and guard rail.

There was damage to the front end and both sides of the man’s car, but he was not injured.

9:42 a.m. A 52-year-old Bainbridge Island woman reported another woman for reportedly violating an anti-harassment order and shoveling gravel in her direction as she walked by.

The incident occurred several days before, when the woman was going for a walk on the beach. She said a 64-year-old Poulsbo woman, who she already had an order against, was working at a nearby job site and, upon seeing her coming, abandoned what she was doing, grabbed a shovel and began shoveling rocks toward her.

The woman emailed video of the incident to the police, which seemingly corroborated her report.

As the woman approached the job site, police watched as the other woman “scrambles down off the pile, secures a shovel, and begins to shovel gravel from a pile of gravel, throwing the gravel on the beach in what appears to be an exaggerated motion.”

The report and video were forwarded to the city prosecutor for review.
