Police blotter: Sex offender castrates himself


A registered sex offender cut off his testicles and flushed them down a toilet while staying at his mother’s house on Bainbridge.

The blotter’s below.

Sept. 18
Unwanted sign: A Bainbridge woman reported that a local political candidate posted an unwanted campaign sign on her property and refused to remove it. The sign was posted in the right-of-way at the corner of Sportsman Club-New Brooklyn intersection without her permission. The woman contacted the candidate and let him know that city code requires permission from the abutting property owner. The candidate responded that the code “was bad,” and that he would not remove the sign, she said. Police forwarded a report to the city code enforcement officer.

Illegal sign: The owner of an illegally-placed commercial sign tried to take the sign from an officer after she had seized it. The 5-foot-tall sandwich board sign was blocking the sidewalk at the Highway 305-High School Road intersection. The officer had loaded the 5-foot-tall sign in her truck when the owner, a Poulsbo businessman, appeared at the scene and attempted to pull the sign out. The officer ordered the man to not touch the sign. The man then approached the officer, prompting her to order him to back away for her safety. The man then argued that nearby signs for a charity car wash should also be removed. The officer informed him that the signs do not violate city code because they are for a temporary event and do not block public right-of-ways. The man’s sign further violates city code because it is more than three feet taller than what is allowed for sandwich boards. The sign, which the officer noted was heavy and difficult to load, was taken to the police station. A report was forwarded to the city code enforcement officer.

Sept. 16
Trespassing: A 20-year-old Bainbridge man was apprehended after he jumped a Kono Road home’s security fence and was yelled at by the homeowner. The suspect, who was apprehended by police near the home at 12:40 p.m., admitted he had jumped the fence. He explained that he saw a rare mushroom growing on the property. “I saw a really cool looking mushroom that I’ve been looking for,” the suspect told the property owner. The suspect dropped the mushroom while fleeing the scene. The suspect had a “live Marmoset monkey sitting on his shoulder,” police noted. A report was forwarded to the county prosecutor for possible trespassing charges.

Sept. 15
Crash: An apparent diabetic attack may have caused a Hawaii resident to crash his car into a guard rail on Highway 305 just before 2:30 a.m. The collision happened at a relatively low speed. Police reported no injuries.

Sept. 14
Assault: A 23-year-old Bainbridge man reported that another man had pushed him into Eagle Harbor from the city dock and then pushed him into a dinghy, causing injuries to his ribs. The victim said he came to the dock looking for a man he suspected had slashed his inflatable dinghy. Later, the man sprang from a bush and pushed him in the water, the victim said. When he got out of the water, the man reportedly pushed him into a metal dinghy. The victim later changed his story, saying fear of the man may have cause him to jump or fall into the dinghy. Witnesses had conflicting reports about the incident. The man suspected of pushing the victim was contacted. He disputed victim’s story, stressing that he had felt threatened by the victim after he had said he’d “go Captain Kidd” on him in retaliation for earlier conflicts. A report was sent to the prosecutor’s office for review.

Sept. 13
Threatened: A Poulsbo businessman reported that another man representing another business threatened him after a dispute about the use of signs at the Highway 305-High School Road intersection. The victim said he was putting out a business sign at the intersection shortly after 10 a.m. when he noticed the other man holding a sign for another business. The victim said he approached the man to ask him about the theft of some of his signs. The other man retreated to a parked car. Rather than speak with the man, the victim decided to photograph his license plate. This prompted the other man to exit his car and threaten to burn the victim’s business down, according to the victim. When contacted by police, the other man said the victim had cursed at him, “dropping the f-bomb” several times, and had made obscene gestures and indecent comments about his mother. Police decided to take no action against either party.

Sept. 11
Drunk driving: A Bainbridge female was arrested for drunk driving on Miller Road just before 5 p.m. Police witnessed the suspect fail to stop at an intersection. A check of license plate revealed she had an expired license. Once pulled over, the suspect exhibited intoxicated behavior and had the odor of alcohol. The suspect admitted she’d had “quite a bit” to drink the night before and two drinks prior to driving. The suspect noted that she has had a problem with alcohol for 30 years. After failing a series of field sobriety tests, the suspect was taken to the county jail in Port Orchard.

Sept. 10
Crash: A Poulsbo female drove her station wagon into the rear-end of a car driven by a Bainbridge female on Madison Avenue just before 10:30 a.m. The collision injured the necks of both drivers. The station wagon driver said she was rubbing her eyes when the collision occurred.

Castration: A Bainbridge man was airlifted to Harborview hospital in Seattle after he cut out his testicles and flushed them down a toilet. The man called police just before 12:30 a.m. to report that he had “performed surgery” on himself, police said. Police found the man at his mother’s High School Road home wearing only a sweatshirt and holding a bloody towel to his crotch. The man told police he had cut out his testicles with a razor knife. No motive was noted in a police report, but the man did tell police he was into “BME or self-castration.” The man’s mother had been asleep on a couch when the incident occurred. The man appeared to have been sleeping on a floor in a room cluttered with boxes and computer parts. Police later learned the man is registered as a homeless sex offender in King County.

  1. Nothing funny about a self castration but the story about the mushroom picker with a monkey is priceless.
