PORT GAMBLE — A woman who climbed onto a casino poker table, drunk, shouting "whale killer" at patrons, was arrested earlier this week for disorderly conduct.
The 56-year-old Sequim resident was also booked for assaulting a Port Gamble tribal officer for kicking him in the leg, according to reports.
Deputies were called to The Point Casino on the Port Gamble Tribal Reservation Aug. 15.
The woman talked to a security guard earlier in the evening, and was described as likely intoxicated, but "in good spirits."
Over the next two hours she was described first as "confrontational and loud," and then "loud, rude and aggressive" as she climbed onto the poker table and began shouting. A game was in progress, reports said.
When tribal officers confronted the woman she was sitting in a corner. She kicked one of the officers in the shins.
She was booked into the Kitsap County jail for investigation of third-degree assault and disorderly conduct.
