Trespass: At 1:04 a.m., a man was placed in custody for trespassing and violation of the open alcohol container law at the North Bend train depot. An officer noticed a gray and silver truck pull into the parking space west of the depot. The man at the wheel exited the vehicle and approached the officer, who was already at the scene. The officer had prior contact with the driver, who said he was picking up his step-son, for driving with a suspended license. The driver left the area on foot but returned to his vehicle a short time later and drove off with his step-son. A records check confirmed the driver had a suspended license and he was cited for driving while his license was suspended.

Public intoxication: At 12:41 a.m., two officers were conducting a foot patrol at the train depot in North Bend. The park is closed during hours of darkness, but is known to be a high crime area involving alcohol and drug violations. As the officers approached the park, they encountered several men sitting by the building. One had a canned beverage obscured by a brown paper bag. The officer recognized the man from prior contacts. As one officer talked to him, he detected a strong odor of alcohol. The man’s speech was slurred. The officer identified the can as a 23.5 oz. of “Four Loko” watermelon-flavored malt beverage. The man was taken into custody. He said he did not have enough money to go to a nearby tavern, so he bought the “Four Loko” and came to the park to drink it. He had only managed half the can, and asked, unsuccessfully, if he could finish the beverage before he went to jail. The remaining liquor was dumped and placed in the trash, and the man was booked in Issaquah Jail.
