Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | 'Hey, buddy'

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 244 calls for service between Saturday, April 30 and Friday, May 6. Below are selected reports.

At 10:17 a.m. Wednesday, May 4 in Port Hadlock, a caller reported an unwanted homeless person who was sleeping on the porch of an antique shop.

The woman was told to leave but started to threaten the caller when she was asked to go away.

The woman claimed that two deputies had told her earlier that it was OK for her to be on the porch.

The owner of the property did not want her on the premises, however.

She was told the next time she was found on the property that she would be arrested for trespassing. The woman said she understood the warning.

At 11:49 a.m. Wednesday, May 4 in Chimacum, an assault that had happened two weeks earlier at the high school was reported.

The incident occurred April 25 between two students, and a detective met with the victim in the principal’s office at the school.

The student said he was playing a video game with a friend when the friend got angry with him and threatened to put him in a choke hold. The friend continued to talk about it for the next hour, and then told the victim he should kill himself.

The victim said he ultimately blocked the person from the video game.

He then said he saw his friend at school, and said the friend came up on him from behind and said, “Hey, buddy” and put his arm around his neck.

He then said the next thing he remembered, he was on the floor, waking up.

He said his body felt like it was asleep and his neck hurt.

The other student said he had been messing around with the victim and put him into a headlock for five or six seconds when the victim fell to the ground. He said he thought he was faking it because his eyes were still open. He then said it was wrong and he had gone too far.

He said he had done it because they were friends and his friend had kicked him off the video game the day before.

The student was given an in-school suspension.

Recordings of the interviews and the case was forwarded to the county prosecutor’s office for a charging decision.
