3:48 a.m. – DUI Arrest: Police found a 26-year-old man passed out in the driver’s seat of an idling vehicle in the middle of the road near the intersection of East Lake Sammamish Parkway and Redmond Way. Officers observed the vehicle sitting at an intersection for several minutes and not moving through multiple cycles of the traffic light. Upon investigating, the driver was sound asleep at the wheel with the vehicle still in drive. Officers woke the man and observed several other obvious signs of intoxication. The suspect was taken into custody on suspicion of DUI.

11:36 a.m. – Burglary: A man awoke from a nap on his couch to find an uninvited male in his residence collecting snacks on the 16000 block of NE 40th Court. The victim yelled at the suspect, who dropped the pretzels and candy bars he was holding and left the home. Officers arrived quickly, tracked down the suspect nearby and detained him without incident. The victim reported he had not felt threatened at any time by the suspect, who said he was just looking for some food and a place to sleep. The suspect’s identity was not immediately clear, as he initially told police he was the son of famous martial artist, Bruce Lee. The suspect was booked on suspicion of burglary.
