A 62-year-old Poulsbo man was charged with assault in the first degree after allegedly striking another man with the butt end of a shotgun after an argument and ensuing scuffle at a home on Thursday Oct. 11, charging documents say.

According to documents filed on Friday, Oct. 12, Brian J. Williams, is being held on $100,000 bail following the incident in which it is alleged that he pointed the gun at a man, cocked it and pulled the trigger.

According to court documents, Kitsap County Sheriff’s deputies and an officer with the Poulsbo Police Department responded to an assault call in the 200 block of Wesley Way in Poulsbo just after 9 p.m. on Thursday.

According to the incident report, an argument between the two arose when the alleged victim “made a comment to Brian that maybe if he didn’t spend moms rent money on prostitutes and his ex-stripper girlfriend he might be able to pay his bills,” the report reads.

The alleged victim told police that shortly after the argument, Williams emerged from another room with a shotgun, telling him to leave the house. As the alleged victim went to call 911, Williams allegedly struck him with the butt of the shotgun. The two then began wrestling, during which Williams is alleged to have bit two of the other man’s fingers, breaking the skin. After the scuffle, Williams allegedly pointed the gun at the victim and pulled the trigger, but the weapon was not loaded.
