A 51-year-old man was arrested on the 9500 block of S.W. Gorsuch Road late Sunday afternoon for possession of methamphetamine and other alleged violations, King County sheriff’s deputies report.

Deputies went to the man’s house to arrest him on outstanding misdemeanor warrants, said Dep. Joel Anderson. During a search “incident to the arrest,” officers found methamphetamine on the man. Later, when a medic tried to examine his back, the man attempted to assault the medic, leading to a felony assault charge as well, Anderson said.

The man is now in jail awaiting a hearing; bail has been set at $10,000, Anderson said.

Around 8 p.m., also on Sunday, gun shots were heard by several neighbors not far from the Gorsuch home where the arrest took place. Anderson, however, said the two incidents don’t appear to be linked.

“We have nothing to tie the shots to that house,” Anderson said. “By the time we got to the area, we could not locate or see anything” having to do with the incident.

The Beachcomber does not release the names of people who have been arrested. Names are released only when charges are made.
