All subjects in the police blotter are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

PARAPHERNALIA: At 2:06 a.m. June 7, an officer stopped a vehicle for speeding on state Route 410 East. The officer smelled the odor of fresh marijuana; the driver handed it to the officer. The man was placed under arrest for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He was released with a notice of infraction and a criminal citation.

VOMIT: At 1:02 a.m. June 8, an officer was dispatched to the parking lot at 29405 SR410 E. to respond to an unconscious man. The subject was lying down in the lot and covered in vomit. Medical aid arrived and transported the evidently intoxicated man to the hospital.

DOMESTIC ASSAULT: At 8:15 p.m. June 8, four officers were dispatched to a 911 hangup on South Cedar Street. A 27-year-old man answered the door, claimed everything was fine and attempted to close it on the police. However the officers were able to ascertain that, during an argument over finances, the man physically assaulted his wife. He also destroyed property but, since Washington state uses the concept of community property in its marriage law, it did not constitute a crime. The man was arrested for assault in the fourth degree.

MARIJUANA DISCOVERED FROM MISSING PLATE: At 10:56 p.m. June 8, an officer stopped a car on the 410 for missing a front license plate. He could smell marijuana coming from the vehicle. Both the driver and both passengers denied having any on their person. However, two passengers were found to have warrants. The driver was given a notice of infraction for her missing plate, and the vehicle was impounded while the officer waited for a warrant.

DUI: A vehicle was stopped for negligent driving on Mason Street at 1:35 a.m. June 9. He was found to be driving while intoxicated and arrested.

MALICIOUS MISCHIEF: Officers were called to North River Avenue June 9 on a report of juveniles damaging picnic tables. The lawmen contacted four juvenile boys and a visibly marred table. A 17-year-old boy from Black Diamond admitted to breaking the table and provided a written statement.

INTOXICATED: An officer was called to assist on a DUI pullover on Main Street after midnight on June 10. The arriving took over to administer field sobriety tests—all of which the driver failed. He was arrested for the violation and his vehicle towed.

MISDEMEANOR MARIJUANA: A 23-year-old Bonney Lake man was pulled over the morning of June 10 for driving on a suspended license and failing to obey an officer. He was arrested and found to be in possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He was issued a notice of infraction, two criminal citations, and booked into the Buckley Jail.
