Suspicious Person/Activity — Caller reported that an individual had threatened to kill him. Officers contacted the complainant who could not articulate how he came about the belief that he was going to be killed nor could he state why he thought the other individual wanted to kill him.

April 15

Assistance Rendered — Officers responded to a residence to assist a very intoxicated individual in removing an unknown and unwanted guest. The complainant pointed to an individual on the floor, stating, "I don't know that dude and he has to go." The "dude" was a drunken female whom the complainant has known for most of his life.

Neither man wished to pursue charges against the other. The captain of the vessel agreed to deal with his two model employees in the morning, but was perturbed that neither of them would be spending the night in jail.

July 24

Assault - Officers responded to a processing plant regarding an alleged assault, and discovered that one man had sprayed another in the face with water, one by accident and then again on purpose when the drenched victim threatened him.

July 25

Assault - Officer responded to a report that a man had been threatened at the Harbor View Bar and found that an intoxicated and now contrite patron had phoned police with this patently false allegation after he was removed from the bar by a bouncer.

Ambulance responded and subject signed a refusal form.

Oct. 3

Theft - An extremely intoxicated woman told police that her bodyguard had stolen $380, then $480, from her pocket tonight.
