Bainbridge blotter | You’re only hurting yourself

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


11:27 a.m. A 36-year-old man was observed by police driving away from the municipal court building in Rolling Bay Hall without an ignition interlock device in his vehicle shortly after being instructed by a judge not to drive as he was required to have one.

He was taken into custody immediately.

Asked if he had anything in his pockets that might hurt police during a search, the man replied, “I wish I did.”

Asked to repeat himself, the man said, “I wish I had something on me that would hurt you.”

Police verified through the Department of Licensing the man’s’s license still had the pre-trail ignition interlock restriction. A report was forwarded to the prosecutor for charging consideration.

The man was allowed to remove items from the vehicle, which he informed police he sometimes sleeps in. Police responded that he was not allowed to drive the vehicle without a device installed or he would be taken to jail and it would be impounded.

His sleeping in it was not technically forbidden.
