Darrington woman arrested after crashing into brewery patio

She reportedly was having mental health and drug-use issues, and is accused of assault and hit-and-run.

DARRINGTON — A woman allegedly hit her father with a baseball bat and crashed a truck into the patio of a brewery early Saturday, according to documents filed in Snohomish County Superior Court.

She apparently was having problems with mental health and drug use, a Snohomish County sheriff’s deputy reported.

The woman, 37, has been arrested for investigation of second-degree assault, malicious mischief and hit-and-run of property.

Early Saturday morning, a man woke up to hear his truck start up and peel off. He heard honking and a loud commotion down the street. His daughter was in distress the night before, he later told sheriff’s deputies.

When he went to check, she had parked the truck outside the house and was sitting in the vehicle. He pulled her out, and she eventually went inside and to her father’s bedroom.

He called 911 around 7:30 a.m. to report she had taken his green Toyota Tacoma and was “wrecking havoc upon the town of Darrington.” Deputies arrived soon after.

Inside, the bedroom was reportedly “destroyed,” with a shattered window and glass all over the floor. The father was trying to restrain the woman. He had a head wound, according to the deputy’s report.

When aid arrived, the father was treated at the scene and the woman was transported to Cascade Valley Hospital.

Around that time a deputy noticed it appeared a vehicle had crashed into wooden benches on the patio of River Time Brewing down the street. He went to investigate.

He found the truck’s front grill and license plate. He talked to an employee who heard a loud crash then watched the truck back away and drive around the building a few times, according to court papers.

Once the woman was discharged from the hospital, she was booked into the Snohomish County Jail, where she was behind bars Monday.
