An Olympia man was sentenced to 33 months following a bizarre arrest for assault and possession of cocaine.
Adam Lamar Fowler, 25, appeared Monday in Thurston County Superior Court. He pleaded guilty to third-degree assault and unlawful possession of a controlled substance. His sentence will be followed by a year of probation.
Court documents give the following account:
On July 3, Olympia Police responded to a report of a person who had broken a business window in the 100 block of Legion Way and was trying to climb a light pole.
The officer arrived and found Fowler holding a pig-shaped lawn ornament. Fowler ignored commands to comply with police and responded with vulgar language.
Fowler was aggressive with officers, kicking at them during his arrest. After he was medically cleared at Providence St. Peter Hospital, police took Fowler to be booked. While he was being booked, Fowler pulled down his pants and stuck his rear end toward the officer. He later slammed his head against a wall twice and was subsequently placed into a restraint chair with a “spit sack” over his head because he was spitting at an officer.
An officer discovered a plastic baggie of cocaine — along with a baggie of what was believed to be a cutting agent for cocaine — upon removing Fowler’s right shoe and sock.
Estimated cost of the damage to the business window was $500.
