NORTH BEND – The man arrested for shooting up a North Bend motel has a history of run-ins with the law that goes back 13 years.

Travis Cabe, a 30-year-old from Pasco, was arrested the night of June 26 after allegedly firing a gun in a room he was staying in at the Sunset Motel, 227 North Bend Way.

Witnesses said Cabe, who had checked in earlier that day, was acting strange. He started firing a gun inside his room and jumped out of his window onto the balcony. He allegedly went into the room next door where he frightened a resident who retreated to the bathroom.

Cabe reportedly kept yelling that he had been stabbed.

When officers arrived at the motel about 9 p.m., they found Cabe out front with a handgun that he started pointing at King County Sheriff’s Office deputies. They also found him bleeding but were unable to determine how the injury was caused.

After a verbal exchange with the deputies, the Sheriff’s Office said Cabe dropped his gun off the balcony and was eventually arrested.

Although the incident ended without anyone getting hurt, Cabe allegedly kicked out the back window of the patrol car in which he was being detained. Deputies suspected a bad reaction to drugs had caused his behavior.

Deputies also reportedly found a large cache of handguns, rifles, knives and ammunition in Cabe’s room after he was arrested.

Between 1989-1994, Cabe has been convicted of 19 felony and misdemeanor charges, varying from second-degree robbery to driving offenses.

In the Sunset Motel shooting, Cabe has been charged with second-degree assault and unlawful possession of a firearm. If convicted of both charges, Cabe could face up to 10 years in prison.

He will be arraigned on Thursday, July 11, with a trial to come later this year.

King County officials are still investigating why Cabe was in North Bend and why he was so heavily armed.
