A 31-year-old Port Orchard woman was arrested for attempted assault, malicious mischief and reckless driving in Bremerton Oct. 12. The incident included throwing a bowl of macaroni and cheese on a state patrol vehicle.
Bremerton police officers arrived to the area of Gregory Way and State Avenue at about 4:27 p.m. for a reported road rage incident. An officer observed macaroni and cheese on the hood of a state patrol sergeant’s vehicle. When the officer asked the woman what happened, she responded that she had been stalked by an ex-boyfriend who drove the same vehicle, a silver Honda Pilot, as the sergeant. She said that she has some mental problems and had been placed on new medication, according to police reports.
The state patrol sergeant said he was driving west on State Highway 16 when the woman pulled behind him in her vehicle following closely. It continued onto State Route 304 into Bremerton, according to reports. When the sergeant was at a stoplight at State Route 304 and Farragut Street, the woman got out of the vehicle and threw a bowl of macaroni and cheese onto the hood of the sergeant’s vehicle and another nearby vehicle. When the light turned green, the woman’s vehicle pulled ahead and turned onto State Avenue and Gregory Way when she got out of her vehicle, the sergeant said.
The woman held a rock above her head in an aggressive manner and the sergeant placed his hand on his duty firearm, identifying himself and ordering her to stop. The woman dropped the rock and she and her 51-year-old boyfriend became cooperative. She was arrested and booked into Kitsap County jail for third-degree attempted assault, third-degree malicious mischief and reckless driving. The report was forwarded to the prosecutor’s office.
