    Man jailed after allegedly threatening Port Orchard restaurant employee with gun

     

    Port Orchard man who allegedly threatened a Puerto Vallarta manager with a loaded gun was taken to Kitsap County jail Saturday and booked on suspicion of a felony threat and three counts of third-degree assault.

    About 3:11 p.m. Saturday, he called 911 from a home on the 9300 block of Orchard Avenue, saying he felt suicidal. Sheriff’s deputies went to the house and learned that the man had taken off in a red Honda Pilot.

    At 4:22 p.m., deputies were called to Puerto Vallarta, at the intersection of Bethel and Lund avenues, where then man was said to have drawn a gun in the parking lot.

    A waitress who was familiar with the man said she came on shift and found him collapsed in a booth in the bar area of the restaurant. A cab was called to take him home. As the manager was escorting the man outside, he allegedly opened his fanny pack, pulled out the gun and said, “”Adios amigos, or …””

    The manager ran inside to call 911. The waitress and another employee went outside and were able to take the bag with the gun from the suspect, as well as his car keys.

    The suspect was found lying on his back beside a red Honda Pilot. During attempts to place him in a patrol car, the suspect kicked two Port Orchard police officers. Once in the car, he had to be put in a shoulder restraint and padded helmet to keep him from kicking the windows and banging his head.

    The gun was found to be loaded with a round in the chamber. There were two loaded magazines, a concealed-weapons permit and the man’s identification in the fanny pack.

    On route to the jail, the suspect allegedly threatened a deputy.
