Assault on ferry captain
nets felony charges
KINGSTON An 18-year-old Stanwood resident was arrested at about 11:15 p.m. Aug. 13 aboard the MV Walla Walla and charged with felony assault after he punched a ferry captain, who, along with several other crew members, was trying to get the man to disembark the boat, according to the Kitsap County Sheriffs Office.
Deputies felt because of the mans behavior he was under the influence of drugs at the time of the assault. He was unresponsive when deputies arrived, and struggled when they handcuffed him.
Once at the jail, the 18-year-old spoke for the first time, asking where his friend was. When deputies explained why he was there, he responded Cool.
He was booked at the Kitsap County Jail for third degree assault, with bail initially set at $20,000. At his court date Aug. 14, his charges were increased to felony assault.
