Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | Too much to drink

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 239 calls for service between Saturday, Oct. 1 and Friday, Oct. 7. Below are selected reports.

At 8:58 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 6 in Brinnon, a woman said a man was using slurs and making threats of bodily harm.

The woman, who said she was transgender, did not feel safe. She said she had mace and would spray the man if he tried to hurt her.

The call then disconnected.

On a following call with dispatchers, the woman said the man had backed off and she didn’t mace him. She said the man walked away after she brandished the mace.

She said she was about to get onto the bus to Port Townsend and a deputy didn’t need to respond to the scene.

At 4:06 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7 in Port Hadlock, a 7-year-old girl said she got into an argument with a 12-year-old boy on the school bus and he pulled a hunting knife on her.

The bus driver didn’t see the knife, and the girl said she didn’t tell the bus driver because she was too afraid.

A deputy spoke to the girl and her father. She said she was talking to the boy’s younger brother, but the 12-year-old told her to stop talking to him.

She said she continued, but was using sign language. She then said the older boy hit her in the stomach. When she hit him back, she said he pulled out a knife.

She said he also demanded that she give him back his Rubik’s Cube or he would throw her off the bus.

She said she then went and sat in a different seat.

A deputy spoke to the boy and his mother, and he said he didn’t know anything about what the girl was talking about. He said he didn’t have a brother with the same name as the one given by the girl, but did have a friend by that name.

Authorities reviewed video from the bus, and during a follow-up visit with the girl, she said she had made up the story.

At 9:36 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7 in Brinnon, a woman reported an unwanted person and then hung up on the phone.

When a dispatcher called back, a man answered and said dispatchers had heard a movie and not his mother.

He said he had been talking about duct tape with his son. His mother was not nearby but in the bathroom.

The man became evasive and tried to put other people on the call. A woman then got on the phone and said the caller was drunk. She then said, “I need to go.”

The line went silent but the woman eventually came back on the line and said everything was OK. The woman said, “I”m going to take him to treatment right now,” and then hung up.

A deputy determined that no crime had occurred but the people on the phone call had consumed too much alcohol.
