Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | Vexing video

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 291 calls for service between Friday, Jan. 6 and Friday, Jan. 13. Below are selected reports.

t 3:33 p.m. Monday, Jan. 9 in Port Hadlock, a caller reported being harassed.

The caller noted finding a steel rod in the ground, which the caller pulled from the ground.

A man came out from a nearby residence and started yelling at the caller, and made threats to assault the person.

The man then went back into his house.

The caller did not want the incident investigated, but just wanted to have it on file.

At 10:35 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 10 in Brinnon, a resident reported an ongoing issue with trespassing on his property.

He said someone had smashed a gate he had installed on an easement, and had started cutting trees on the property.

The incident happened two days earlier.

The caller said the suspect was actually a tenant, and the caller was advised the person would have to be legally evicted to prevent the person’s return.

At 3:17 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 10 in Port Hadlock, a woman said she had a dispute with a man two days earlier and had video of the encounter.

The woman said she saw the man in a parking lot and went to confront him regarding a past sexual assault. 

She did not want to talk to law enforcement about the assault, but said she had video from the confrontation.

A deputy reviewed the video, which started at a point where the woman had already approached the subject and appeared to be trying to hit him. The woman could be seen trying to strike the man as he was backing away, and the man could be heard repeatedly telling the woman to get away.

The man then threw the woman to the ground twice, and then tried to retreat from the scene.

The deputy noted that video showed the woman as being the aggressor, and told the woman that unless something else happened that was not recorded, the situation did not look favorably for her.

The woman elected to not provide any more evidence that made her look bad.
