Woman reports “possible murder,” is arrested for assault and drug possession

A 40-year-old Port Orchard woman was arrested Oct. 9 for third-degree assault and the possession of methamphetamine after calling from the Oyster Bay Inn in Bremerton to report a “possible murder.”

A police officer arrived at about 8:18 p.m. and the front desk staff said that the woman left on foot heading east on Kitsap Way. The officer found her in front of the Flagship Inn and she appeared upset and acted like she didn’t want to talk to the officer. When asked for her name, she said “no” and said she wanted to prevent a murder.

She continued to become angry and walked into Kitsap Way. The officer attempted to pull her back on the sidewalk to avoid getting hit by oncoming traffic but she resisted and swung her arm, nearly hitting the officer in the face.

The officer eventually was able to get her back on the sidewalk but the woman attempted to bite and scratch the officer. Finally she resisted, being aggressive after the officer told her she would be tasered if she did not comply. The woman was under the influence of drugs or had a medical or mental condition, according to police reports.

The woman was arrested for third-degree assault and for possession of methamphetamine — she was found with less than one gram of the substance. The report was forwarded to the prosecutor’s office.
