Bail revoked for man who violated terms of his release

An Oak Harbor man accused of purposely crashing into a car with his kids inside recently had his bail revoked, according to court records.

At a recent hearing in Island County Superior Court, a judge ordered that Christopher Williams, 31, be held in Island County Jail without bail after he allegedly violated the conditions of his release.

According to the prosecutor, a non-expiring domestic violence protection order barring him from contacting the adult victim was entered in the case April 22. On May 31, an Oak Harbor police officer caught Williams inside a car with the woman, court records state.

Williams had previously been released after posting $10,000 bail.

Prosecutors charged Williams in Island County Superior Court April 10 with assault in the second degree, assault of a child in the second degree, hit and run and reckless driving.

The victim reported to police that she was driving with the children and stopped at the 7-Eleven store on the south end of town, where she encountered Williams.

The woman drove away but was struck from behind by Williams’ car a few minutes later on Northeast Izett Street, the police report states. The impact was forceful enough to spin her car, but nobody was injured. Witnesses said Williams was speeding prior to the crash.

Two passengers got out of Williams’ car and ran away; Williams drove off after the woman punched him, the officer wrote.

Williams could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted of the charges against him.
