Brockus to serve out his council term

Bremerton City Councilman Adam Brockus, who last week pleaded innocent to a misdemeanor charge, will serve out his term as District 3 (Manette) representative.

Brockus was charged last week with obstruction of a law enforcement officer following a dispute at his home involving a family member. He was arrested Jan. 4, the same day as his swearing in ceremony.

According to court documents, Bremerton Police were called to Brockus’ home in the 1100 block of Perry Avenue for a possible mental health problem with a 36-year-old woman later identified as his sister.

Police allege that during the incident, Brockus shoved an officer and later got between the officer and another family member as police tried to subdue the family member.

Brockus stated his sister has received the help she needs and as advised by his attorney, declined further comment on the matter.
