Oak Harbor man charged for allegedly smacking friend with bottle

An Oak Harbor man is facing the prospects of jail time after allegedly repeatedly smacking a man over the head with a wine bottle, according to court documents.

Prosecutors charged Brent A. Anglin in Island County Superior Court Oct. 11 with assault in the second degree.

A deputy with the Island County Sheriff’s Office responded to a Heller Road home for a report of an assault Sept. 30. The deputy found the resident lying on a couch with his head covered in blood; the man was transported to the hospital.

The deputy spoke to the victim a couple of days later. The man had 20 staples on his head over multiple cuts.

The victim claimed that he got into a fight with Anglin because he had come on to his wife. He said Anglin picked up a wine bottle and struck him on the head about three times, the report states.

The deputy later spoke to Anglin, who allegedly admitted to striking the man with a wine bottle because he was being mean to his wife. He said he didn’t hit him as hard as he could have.

Anglin allegedly told the deputy, “It was me. I don’t feel good about it.”
