Coupeville man accused of assault in fight over money

A Coupeville man is facing a felony charge for allegedly choking a 23-year-old woman during a fight over money, according to court documents.

Prosecutors charged Jordan S. Scott, 30, in Island County Superior Court Nov. 14 with assault in the second degree. It was charged as a domestic violence-related crime.

A deputy with the Island County Sheriff’s Office investigated a report of a dispute at a Coupeville home on Sept. 5.

A woman reported that she took $1,000 out of her bank account earlier that day and left it with Scott for safekeeping while she was out of the house. When she returned, however, Scott told her he didn’t have it.

A verbal dispute turned violent when Scott threw her on a bed, choked her until she couldn’t breathe and threatened to “end” her, the deputy’s report states.

The woman said Scott stopped after another person arrived home.

Scott also punched a hole in the wall in anger, the report states.
