Drunk follows, threatens woman

A Port Orchard man drunkenly followed a woman home in his car and then threatened to kill her, according to a Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office report.

Bryce Hoisington, 27, was arrested July 25 by Kitsap County sheriff’s deputies for felony harassment and a DUI after he crashed his car into a ditch on Long Lake Road.

Hoisington is held in Kitsap County Jail in lieu of $30,000 bail.

According to a Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office report, sheriff’s deputies were first alerted to Hoisington after they received a call from a 47-year-old South Kitsap man saying his 50-year-old wife was followed home and threatened by Hoisington.

According the report, the 50-year-old victim was traveling eastbound on Mile Hill near Long Lake road when a grey Nissan Altima pulled in behind her. The driver flashed his lights and honked his horn. The 50-year-old continued to drive to her home.

According to the report, Hoisington followed her home. When both the suspect and the victim got out of their cars, Hoisington yelled out that he would marry the victim. The victim’s husband told Hoisington to leave, and his demeanor quickly changed and said he was going to kill the victim and that she wasn’t safe in her house.

Neither the victim or her husband had never seen Hoisington before.

Hoisington then left the house and crashed his car into a ditch on Long Lake Road. When sheriff’s deputies found him, he allegedly kept repeating that he intended to work as a Seattle Police Officer.

“I want to be like you,” Hoisington allegedly told police.

According to the sheriff’s office report, Hoisington gave two blood-alcohol tests, with samples resulting in a .213 and a .218, way above the legal limit of .08. He also allegedly admitted to drinking beer, vodka and taking morphine for an injury.
