Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of a man and woman fighting in the Village Fair Apartments parking lot on NE Fairgrounds Road in East Bremerton shortly before 8:30 p.m. Sept. 4.

The 26-year-old woman went into an apartment and her 31-year-old husband left on foot. A deputy found the man walking along Fairgrounds Road and detained him.

The woman told deputies she got into an argument with her husband and they had both been drinking alcohol. She told a deputy she was into “freaky (expletive deleted)” and grabbed her husband, held him against a wall and made sexual advances toward him. He declined the advances and the pair argued.

A woman said she and her husband were playing cards at the couple’s apartment that night when the conversation turned to the husband sleeping with his wife’s sister. The wife got upset and the pair began to fight.

The fight moved into the parking lot and the man held their newborn baby as his wife tried to hit him with a car child restraint seat.

The husband said the argument started when his wife thought he was looking at the woman who was playing cards with them. She got upset and started accusing him of sleeping with her sister.

The man was arrested and booked into jail for fourth-degree assault and obstructing law enforcement. The woman was arrested and booked into jail for fourth-degree assault. Both were later released.

‘Scorn of

a woman’

Sheriff’s deputies responded to a domestic dispute in the Griffin Glen Apartments on Mariah Lane NE in East Bremerton at about 12:45 a.m. Sept. 5.

Deputies found a 35-year-old man standing outside the apartment door and his 35-year-old girlfriend was inside. The man said the two had been drinking wine, argued and destroyed the things inside their apartment.

Deputies noted the apartment was “torn apart.” A broken fish tank was on the floor, a guitar was broken, a bookcase had been tipped over, a chair had been cut and there was a folding knife stuck in a wall.

The woman said her boyfriend smoked cigarettes for 20 years and he’d gone the last week and a half without. That night, he got a cigarette from a neighbor and when she took it away from him, “he lost it,” according to the woman.

The man was arrested for fourth-degree domestic violence assault.

On the way to jail, the man told the deputy he did not know about the “scorn of a woman.” The man was later released.

Not quite the definition of shipmate

Sheriff’s deputies responded to the Olympic Village Apartments on NE Steeple Rock Lane in East Bremerton around 9:45 p.m. Sept. 7 for threats with a gun.

The reporting person said a man threatened to come over with a gun and he was now outside the apartment building.

A 24-year-old USS John C. Stennis sailor told a deputy his 23-year-old fellow Stennis sailor called and asked to talk to his 21-year-old female roommate, also assigned to the Stennis. The suspect and woman had a relationship in the past that ended badly and the suspect got aggressive.

The suspect told the man he was coming over and bringing a woman to beat up his female shipmate. He also said he was bringing a gun.

The suspect told a deputy he is married, but was having an affair with the woman. He said someone recently sent his wife a threatening message about the affair.

The suspect had sent threatening text messages to the female shipmate and deputies found a small handgun inside his car.

The man was arrested and booked into jail for harassment. His bail is set at $25,000.

Did I do that?

A sheriff’s deputy responded to an attempted theft at Castle’s Super Store on Randall Way NW in Silverdale shortly before 9 p.m. Sept. 6.

Two store employees told the deputy they recognized the two men who took several items from the store last week.

That night, the two men came in and one man stood at the front counter playing music loudly on his cell phone. The other man walked into the employee-only area. An employee tried to go back there to see what was going on, but customers needed help.

The employees heard the employee-only door close again and saw the man coming out of the back room. The two men left in a white SUV.

The two employees went in the back room and discovered the burglary alarm panel had been ripped off the wall and was missing.

Security video showed the man walk out of the back room and hide the burglary alarm panel in the DVD section of the store.

The employees gave the deputy the SUV’s license plate number and tracked down a 42-year-old East Bremerton man at his home.

The man told a deputy he was at Castle’s, but he didn’t think he did anything. The deputy noted in his report the man smelled like alcohol.

The man was arrested and booked into jail for second-degree burglary, third-degree theft and third-degree malicious mischief. He was later released.
