Arguing with her son over his alcohol consumption and a cigarette lighter, a mother was assaulted by her adult son on Sunday and was arrested, his fifth arrest in a month.
On Sun., June 6 just after midnight, Shawn Reed, 30, staying at his mother’s house in Olympia, allegedly threw a crystal glass at his mother, Beverly, slapped her in the face and threw a beer can at her which struck her foot.
Beverly told Olympia police that Reed was using methamphetamine and she told him to leave, which made Reed “very angry and agitated.” Reed got “in her face” and Beverly exited to her bedroom, where Reed stood outside, banging on the door and yelling at her, breaking the door handle and damaging the door.
When OPD contacted Reed, he was walking North on Fairview St SE, and began to “howl like a wolf,” telling officers “fuck you, I don’t have to talk to you” and then made statements claiming that a family member had once sexually assaulted him. He also referred to officers by an anti-LGBTQ derogatory term.
Reed began to take an aggressive manner toward OPD and was tasered.
Reed was booked into the Olympia Jail for simple assault and malicious mischief, as well as obstructing a law enforcement officer.
HOUSE BREAK-IN LOOKING FOR KOKO
Reed was also arrested on May 21 at 1:02 a.m., for allegedly attempting to break into a woman’s house at the 2100 block of East Bay Dr NE.
He claimed that he was talking to someone named “Koko” and that he heard a woman calling from help at the house.
The reporting victims told OPD that Reed had attempted to access through doors and windows, trying to find “Koko” and that they were now terrified and unsafe.
Reed was booked into the Olympia Jail for Criminal Trespass.
MENTAL DISTURBANCES AND HARASSMENT
Olympia police have been called several times to deal with Reed, including May 5, when he threatened his neighbors at Bethel Street, grabbed a large television and tossed it onto his lawn during a “freak out” then took off in his car.
Reed allegedly woke up his neighbors, a couple who live in the house below his studio apartment, claiming that the couple had left “devices” in his apartment. Reed allegedly kicked the garage door and told the neighbors that he was going to murder them. “I’ll fucking kill you and your girlfriend in your sleep.”
At least 10 neighbors were standing outside their houses concerned about Reed’s behavior when Olympia police arrived.
Reed return to his home later that evening and was arrested, booked into the Olympia jail for harassment with threats.
