Closing time: You don't have to go home, but you can't attack bartenders
SEATTLE -- Remember the intoxicated woman who reportedly defecated on a police car outside a North Seattle bar while screaming that she was a lawyer and deserved respect? Well, if the woman arrested outside another North Seattle bar just two weeks later isn't her, she may be her spiritual twin.
According to the Seattle Police Department's report for the incident, the suspect was drinking at a bar in the 11700 block of 15th Avenue Northeast around 1:45 a.m. when the bartenders announced last call.
Bartenders later told officers the suspect immediately questioned the announcement and demanded to know which clock they were using and how many minutes she had left.
One of the bartenders told the suspect she had two minutes left and turned to walk away. That's when the suspect yelled after the bartender that she probably didn't even graduate high school, according to the report.
The bartender returned to take the suspect's drink away, and the suspect threw it at her, cutting the side of her head, according to the report.
The suspect then reportedly punched a second bartender in the eye when she stepped in to help.
Other patrons came to the bartenders' aid, and the suspect left the bar and got into a car with a man she had come in with. But -- in a rare display of reason for these types of stories -- the man refused to drive off because police had been called.
According to the report, the suspect got out of the car and punched a patron in the mouth when he tried to stop her from walking off.
Officers caught up with the suspect, and she told them she had been trying to leave the bar when a bunch of people tried to stop her, according to the report. She also said one of the bartenders has always been rude to her, though both bartenders told officers they had never seen the suspect before.
The suspect was booked into King County Jail, and the bartenders are pursuing a court order to keep her away from the bar.
