Rolling Hills man harasses neighbors, fights with police

A man accused of harassing people in his Rolling Hills neighborhood on North Whidbey fought with police who came to arrest him March 27, according to court documents.

A report by a deputy with the Island County Sheriff’s Office states that law enforcement responded to 11 reports over the last few months involving 52-year-old Paul Moyers harassing drivers and delivery people, blocking traffic and spray-painting the road.

On March 27, a man reported that he was driving in the area and encountered Moyers, who was blocking the road and yelling.

As the man drove around the human obstruction, Moyer punched the car and dented it, the police report states.

Five deputies arrived to deal with Moyers, who is a large man with a history of being difficult with law enforcement. In the past he claimed to be an undercover U.S. marshal and a military officer, the deputy’s report states.

The deputies confronted Moyers in his driveway and told him he was under arrest. Moyers tried to run and then, allegedly, violently resisted the deputies, the report states.

The deputies reported they had to use a Taser to subdue Moyers to get him to stop resisting.

Moyers was arrested on suspicion of malicious mischief and resisting arrest.

A judge in Island County Superior Court ordered that Moyers be interviewed by a mental health professional for possible commitment to a mental treatment facility.
