Smashed car window may mean felony charge for Coupeville man

A 37-year-old Coupeville man is facing a felony charge for allegedly breaking the window of a patrol car with a rock, court documents allege.

Prosecutors charged Jason Braun in Island County Superior Court Sept. 18 with malicious mischief in the second degree. If convicted, he could face up to 60 days in jail.

Braun allegedly admitted to throwing a rock at the parked patrol car in the afternoon of Sept. 14, according to a report by Deputy Chris Peabody with the Coupeville Marshal’s Office. Peabody had parked the car on North Main Street when it occurred.

Peabody wrote that Braun did not elaborate on why he did it, but Peabody had previously issued him a trespass warning from another location in Coupeville.
