A Newcastle man in the 11800 block of Southeast 75th place threatened a police officer with a gun just before 10 p.m. Oct. 22, according to a police report. Police responded to the area after receiving reports that a woman was screaming for help.

Police located the woman on the man’s property, and the man came to the doorway with a handgun. The officer identified himself as police, but the man cursed at the officer, telling him to leave his property and that he did not care who he was, according to the report.

The officer backed away from the house, but tripped over a plant. He called to his partner that the man had a gun, and his partner called for backup. Bellevue Police officers and a police helicopter responded, Police Chief Melinda Irvine said.

The woman ran and hid as the officer tripped, but she later cooperated with police and approached with her hands up. The man refused to exit the house, but after interviewing the woman, police determined no crime had been committed, so the officers left.

The woman appeared to be intoxicated, according to the police report. Police sent her to Overlake Hospital, requesting a psychiatrist evaluation.

The woman’s brother said he believed she had been drinking alcohol, and he said they had been arguing because she had been drinking margaritas out of nice glasses.
