POLICE LOG ‘Havoc’ the pit bull

A sheriff’s deputy was traveling northbound on Central Valley Road NW at NW San Juan Drive in East Bremerton at 6 p.m. Sept. 15 when she saw a man walking southbound with an unleashed pit bull.

The dog ran into a lane of traffic, forcing a driver to slam on his brakes. The vehicle clipped the dog’s back leg in the process. The man yelled at the dog to get out of the road and the animal cowered and moved away from the man. He followed the dog and pulled him out of the road.

The 21-year-old man bent down to supposedly look at the dog’s leg, but instead he punched him in the face a few times.

The deputy told him the dog should have been on a leash and the man tried to justify punching the dog by saying, “It’s the only way he learns.”

The man then began yelling at a man standing in a yard. The deputy told him to stop screaming, but he continued to yell.

He was arrested and booked into jail for disorderly conduct. He was later released.

Eggs and issues

A sheriff’s deputy spoke with a 22-year-old man at 11:30 a.m. Sept. 18 at the Silverdale sheriff’s office.

He said on Sept. 5 he drove his friend home and waited in his truck while his friend went inside for a moment. He said he used to be friends with one of his roommates, but he had upset the 23-year-old woman earlier that day.

While he was waiting, the woman came outside and started throwing about eight or nine eggs at his truck.

The man went to a car wash and rinsed off the egg yolk and broken shells. He later noticed several circular scratches on the truck that were the same size as an egg.

The man called the woman and told her he wanted her to pay for the damages, but she refused.

No arrest was made and a report was forwarded to the prosecutor’s office for review/filing or charges.
