Officers arrested a 46-year-old man at a Capitol Hill gas station Monday night after he called 911, claimed that his meth dealer had stolen his truck, and then spit at an officer after she pointed out his truck was still parked in the lot.
When officers arrived at the Shell gas station on Broadway and Pike just before midnight they found the 46-year-old man yelling at several people in the street.
Then man told officers he was drunk and had come to the gas station to meet his meth dealer. He then pointed out a man standing nearby, and claimed the man had robbed him at gun point.
Officers contacted the man and found that he was not carrying a gun. The 46-year-old man then pointed out another supposed suspect and claimed that he had a gun. Again, officers were unable to find any firearm on the supposed suspect.
After an officer pointed out that the 46-year-old man’s truck was still parked in the lot, the man became increasingly angry and began yelling obscenities at officers. He worked himself into such a rage that he spit at an officer.
Police arrested the man for assaulting the officer and booked him into King County Jail.
