Don't you just hate it when your ex's friend who you haven't seen for 14 years shows up at your door around noon completely hammered and won't go away and then climbs through your bathroom window and falls all over the place, breaking the sealing around the window, which now you're totally going to have to replace or your heating bills will be sky high in the winter, when all you want to do is finish your damn chores and not deal this drunk asshole from the past who's chugging Bacardi in your goddamn kitchen?
Well, this happened to a Rainier Beach woman May 25th, according to the police report. The victim told police that she was in her home doing chores when the suspect started banging on her front door. She recognized him as an acquaintance of her ex-husband and said she had not seen this man for 14 years. She said he had only been to the house once. He had an open bottle of Bacardi in his hand and was clearly plastered. When she opened the door, he demanded she let him in. She told him she had six children and was not going to let a drunk man into her home. She closed the door and went back to cleaning.
Then she heard a noise from the bathroom. When she went to investigate, she saw the man climbing through the window, destroying the window treatment in the process. At that point she feared for her safety and fled the house, calling 911.
When officers arrived, they found the man in the woman's kitchen drinking his Bacardi. He refused to put the bottle down and come to the front lawn to talk to the officers. Police handcuffed him and found a four-inch kitchen knife in his pocket, which he said he needed for protection. He was placed under arrest.
