Property Damage: Officers responded to a call of an attempted burglary at a SR 410 business around 12:15 a.m. The reporting party showed the officers surveillance video of the suspect trying to enter through the back door along with kicking a gate and punching a car. The suspect left the scene and walked to a near by bar. The officers later found him outside another business where he was banging on the front door. He was placed into custody but due to his level of intoxication, he was cited and transported to his home.

Disorderly: Officers responded to a retirement home where a female resident barricaded herself and a friend in her room. When officers arrived, they entered her room and the subject started yelling at them to leave. The officers tried to get her friend out of the room and when they did the subject started trying to hit the officers and threatening to kill them. East Pierce Fire and Rescue arrived and with the help of the officers, they transported her to Good Sam Hospital. One officer suffered a few scratches in his arm during the incident.

He submitted a breath test and was well over the legal limit. Officers arrested the subject and transported him to the police department where he requested to speak to his lawyer. The subject was taken to the Fife jail where he was booked for driving under the influence.
