ASSAULT ON OFFICER
GARDEN WAY NE: On Oct. 3, around 11:45 p.m., deputies arrived in the shopping area parking lot to assist a person in crisis. The person in crisis was yelling and pacing, and deputies attempted to communicate with the person and contact a mobile crisis team to come help. While doing this, one deputy was confronted by a male saying he also needed help. The deputy began asking questions to the male to see what kind of help he needed. The male got upset that the deputy was asking questions, so the deputy explained that he was currently trying to assist the person who was still yelling and pacing, telling the male he would need to wait. When the deputy turned his back, the male advanced on the deputy while yelling curses. The deputy attempted to back up and create distance but was backed into his vehicle. When the deputy put up his hand to keep the male away, the male swung at the deputy and missed. The deputy took the male to the ground without injury and another deputy came over to help handcuff the male. The male yelled threats to the two deputies. A different deputy who was not present at the time came to attempt to speak to the male and document the incident. The male was booked at King County Jail for assault. During the course of dealing with the assault, the person in crisis walked away and deputies were not able to connect them with the mobile crisis team.
