Assault

A fight between two adult brothers March 24 ended with the arrest of one of them for investigation of fourth-degree assault. The incident took place at a home in the 13100 block of Southeast 258th Street.

One brother told police his sibling became upset with him and put him in a choke hold. When the man later tried to call 911, his brother ripped the phone out of the wall to prevent him from calling, according to the police report. The arrested brother denied to police that he even touched his brother. Nobody told police what had started the dispute.

Drugs

Police arrested a woman for investigation of possession of drug paraphernalia and for a warrant out of Tukwila for obstructing an officer, in an incident at 11:50 p.m. March 27 at a hotel parking lot in the 1200 block of Central Avenue North.

Officers spotted a van in the parking lot with several occupants. They asked a woman to step out of the passenger side of the van and discovered the woman had a warrant out of Tukwila, according the police report.

Police then searched the woman and found a pipe in her jacket pocket that the officer described as the type of pipe used for smoking marijuana. Police took the pipe as evidence.
