Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | Someone brought a rake to a street fight

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 230 calls for service between Saturday, July 2 and Friday, July 8. Below are selected reports. 

At 1:31 p.m. Tuesday, July 5 in Port Hadlock, law enforcement received a report of two men in the middle of the road who were fist-fighting and using garden tools as weapons.

The caller then said three men were now in the road.

Deputies responded and discovered the men were just joking around with each other, and there was no indication of an actual fight or ill will between them.

At 8:29 p.m. Wednesday, July 6 in Brinnon, a caller said he was being threatened by a man he had hired for doing a painting job a while ago.

The man had threatened to come see him Friday for money he thought he was owed.

The caller said the man never finished the painting job, but now claimed he was owed more than $700 for 28 hours of unpaid work and that he was supposed to be paid $25 an hour and not $20 an hour.

The caller said he had hired the man more than a year ago, but the job was never finished. The caller said he believes the man lives in a tent somewhere in Hadlock, but is not from the area and needs money to pay child support and to leave the area.

The caller said he had also pondered about just giving the man $500 so he could leave the state, but insisted he did not owe the man any money.

At 9:47 p.m. Wednesday, July 6 in Forks, a woman said she and her friend were camping at the Hoh River Campground when a man came up on an ATV.

She said she told the man that she and her friend weren’t really in the mood to hang out with new people, and the man stormed off.

He returned a short time later and started making threats.

The woman told dispatchers they would move their campsite and call back if the man returned.

The woman called again 15 minutes later and said the man began following her and her friend as they drove toward US 101.

The call then disconnected.

The woman called back seven minutes later and said the man was no longer following them. They decided to go to a place in Forks for the night.
