Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | Angry driver is weaponized

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 253 calls for service between Saturday, May 7 and Friday, May 13. Below are selected reports.

At 9:45 a.m. Tuesday, May 10 in Port Hadlock, a caller reported a woman who should be made to turn over her cats to an animal shelter. 

The caller believed that three of the cats currently at the home were pregnant.

The woman was contacted, and said the cats at her home were strays that only come in at night. The woman said she did not want to be in trouble for animal neglect. She said she would turn them over to the Humane Society.

At 12:46 p.m. Tuesday, May 10 in Port Ludlow, a caller complained about someone who had parked on the side of Teal Lake Road and was partially blocking traffic.

At 3:34 p.m. Tuesday, May 10 in Brinnon, authorities were called after a woman’s vehicle was blocked off on both ends by other drivers.

A dispatcher could hear a man in the background yelling.

The caller said the man was now getting angry; he was yelling and hitting windows and a door of the woman’s vehicle.

The woman was unable to drive away. 

Another caller phoned in to say he was upset with the woman because she was speeding in a school zone.

The woman was driving a pickup, but both the vehicles blocking her way were also trucks; one was described as a 1991 Dodge with dualies.

One of the truck drivers told authorities he blocked the entire road because he didn’t want the woman in the blocked pickup to kill his daughter.

When the man was asked if he had any weapons in his possession, he answered “himself” because he is a Marine.

Dispatchers could hear both men screaming and swearing.

Deputies responded. One man was taken into custody for DUI and disorderly conduct; the other man, a member of the same family, was taken into custody and cited for reckless driving.
