Underage DUI

A 19-year-old Kirkland man was arrested on the evening of May 2 in the 23100 block of Northeast Eighth Street on suspicion of reckless driving, consumption of alcohol by a minor and driving while intoxicated, a report said. The officer wrote that he was waiting at a stoplight one car behind the suspect, and when the light turned green, the vehicle sped away.

The officer activated his lights and had to speed up to about 60 miles per hour in a 35 zone to catch up. When the driver pulled over, he seemed unaware of the officer’s presence, had a hard time following directions and was unable to perform field sobriety tests, the report said. The suspect told the officer he had consumed three drinks in the previous hour, and asked to “make a deal.” His blood alcohol content measured .183 and .176 on a breathalyzer.

Malicious mischief

Police arrested a 41-year-old Sammamish man for investigation of malicious mischief after he kicked in and damaged a door at the home he shares with his wife in the 4100 block of 198th Court Southeast, a report said. The victim and suspect told officers that they had been arguing; the wife locked herself in the bedroom and the suspect kicked the door open to continue the argument, the report said.

Vandalism

Someone pulled the antenna bracket off of a black 2003 Subaru Baja while it was parked in the 22100 block of Northeast 11th Place between April 25 and 27, according to a police report. Damage was estimated at $50.

Roses ruined

A woman who lives on 223rd Place Southeast told police April 27 that someone toilet-papered her front yard and threw a pudding-like substance on her front porch and door. Three of the woman’s rose bushes, worth about $75, were also trampled, a report said.
