Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


11:40 p.m. A 49-year-old Bainbridge man said he was assaulted by a 47-year-old friend while he had been at the apartment of a 60-year-old man in the 800 block of High School Road.

The victim said he was drinking and eating with the pair. Police said the victim was intoxicated and difficult to understand.

He said his friend became upset with him for drinking and eating too much and trying to “take over the apartment.”

He said he was hit four times and wanted to press charges.

Police learned the victim had a warrant, and he was taken to Station 21 for an ambulance to take him to Harrison Hospital in Bremerton.

Police went to the apartment and talked to the alleged assailant. He said his friend was very drunk and started pushing him. When he pushed him back, the man fell and hit his face on the couch, then got up and left. An officer checked the man’s hands and did not find any noticeable marks.

The other man in the apartment said he was in his bedroom asleep at the time of the shoving.

Police were unable to confirm the allegations made by the man; the hospital was called to make them aware of the man’s warrant status.


5:12 p.m. A 46-year-old Poulsbo woman in a 2013 Chevy Volt was driving north on Highway 305 when she rear-ended a 35-year-old Bainbridge man in a 2011 Ford Escape.

He said he had stopped for traffic at Sportsman Club Road and there were five cars in front of him. She said she was unable to stop in time.

She was cited for inattentive driving and her vehicle was towed away after the crash.
