Super Bowl fan goes overboard | 911 Briefs

POULSBO — A Poulsbo man celebrating Super Bowl Sunday went overboard and ended up in jail after a scuffle with a Kitsap County Sheriff's deputy.

At about 9 p.m. Sunday evening, deputies arrived at NW Circle Drive South in Poulsbo after neighbors called 911 to report shouting and dishes smashing. The caller believed an infant might be in the residence, according to a Kitsap County Sheriff's report.

A woman and the infant left the residence before deputies arrived, but another relative, who was checking on the woman and infant, was in the residence. Deputies described the man who lived at the residence as "an obviously intoxicated male." The residence itself was described as "disastrous," with "household items strewn about and broken."

The man confirmed for deputies there was an argument, but it was finished.

The deputy told the man they were going to leave and periodically check the residence, the report stated.

As they were leaving, the man addressed one of the deputies as "hey, tough guy," the reached up and shoved the deputy.

A shoving match ensued and the deputy attempted to subdue the man. Both slipped off a patio and landed on the ground. The scuffle ended with the man in handcuffs. He was taken to Kitsap County Jail, where he was booked for third-degree assault on a police officer, third-degree malicious mischief, resisting arrest and obstructing.

When deputies contacted the man's wife by cell phone, she apologized for his behavior and said "he never drinks but because it was Super Bowl Sunday, he drank too much," the report stated.
