A 45-year-old Yelm man was arrested and booked into Nisqually Jail on Wednesday, Nov. 25, after allegedly striking his girlfriend. Allen Brown, the suspect, is currently being held on $50,000 bail. 

According to reports, police were called to a residence on the 15300 block of 104th Avenue on a domestic violence call. The caller told them that Brown had reportedly struck her in the face. 

Police reported that, based on previous encounters, Brown tended to be hostile to police when intoxicated, though very cordial when not. 

Upon arrival, police observed bloody spit on the door and walls, as well as multiple broken chairs. According to reports, the woman told police that Brown had been drinking all afternoon and was yelling at her. 

The woman reported that she had been trying to go to bed when he became irate. She reportedly grabbed Brown’s daughter and took her upstairs. 

He also reportedly urinated on the stove downstairs. The woman attempted to clean it up when he became angry and punched her in the face, according to police reports. 

Upon contact with officers, Brown told them that they should arrest him. He became angered fairly quickly after police began to detain him, and police brought him to the ground to make the arrest. During the process, he repeatedly pulled away, according to police reports. 

Upon his transport to Nisqually Jail, Brown became verbal and disorderly while in the back of the vehicle. He reportedly hit the cruiser’s partition and threatened both law enforcement and the judge with physical violence. 

He also claimed Blood gang affiliation, according to the police report, and he made multiple disparaging remarks about tribal members once at the jail.
