make driving tricky
POULSBO Only minor injuries were reported in two rollover accidents that occurred within one block of each other Jan. 15. Freezing temperatures created a layer of ice on the road causing accidents at 12:50 p.m. and 1:45 p.m. on Lincoln Road between Stottlemeyer and Port Gamble roads.
Because of the frigid temperatures, some patches of ice didnt melt off the roads for days, according to Poulsbo Fire Department officials. Officials warned drivers to be aware of icy road condition during cold temperatures, and to drive at slower speeds as needed.
tantrum lands him
in juvenile detention
POULSBO A 15-year-old took a temper tantrum too far when his mom asked him for a favor. The boy allegedly became enraged when his mother, 39, and her tenant, 35, asked him to help move the tenants belongings. When Kitsap County Sheriffs Office deputies arrived on scene at about 3:20 p.m. Jan. 14 at the Ogle Road property in Poulsbo, they found the teenager trying to break into the 35-year-old womans residence.
The teens frustration resulted in him swinging a shovel at the 35-year-old woman. After some discussion he decided to help, but again became angry while carrying a dresser with his mother. The tenant asked him not to treat his mom that way, which caused another angry outburst.
The mother took her son home at that point to try to calm him down. There, he continued to yell at her, and broke down a bathroom door when she tried to get away from him. The 35-year-old and her own 17-year-old son went over to try to calm him down, and took the 39-year-old home with them. It was then the deputies arrived to find the 15-year-old smashing windows to get into the house. According to the sheriffs report, the teen was holding a kitchen knife when deputies arrived, but dropped it when he saw the police.
The teenager was arrested and booked at juvenile detention for second-degree assault, second-degree malicious mischief, third-degree malicious mischief domestic violence and fourth-degree assault domestic violence, deputies said.
