The Morning Memo / Monday: Showers, masked man, arrest

Weather: Saturday and Sunday started out not so great, but certainly turned nice. Soooo, perhaps the clouds and showers predicted for today will fizzle and we’ll have something better. You never know around here. The details.

Traffic: Perhaps because it’s so early, as in 6:25, no traffic buildups are visible on our traffic map or on the DOT cams. Let’s see how long that lasts! The maps and cams.

Phoenix Jones,¬†Guardian of Seattle, yes, that’s what he calls himself and he wears a mask, was arrested on four counts of assault Sunday morning after Seattle police say he pepper-sprayed a group of people leaving a Pioneer Square nightclub.

The incident happened about 2:32 a.m. near First Avenue and Columbia Street. According to police, a group of men and women were walking to their car when a man came up from behind and pepper sprayed them.

Police said two men in the group chased after the suspect. When officers arrived, they separated everyone and made one arrest.

Jones wears a masked costume and, on his Facebook page, identifies himself as “a crime fighter from Seattle.”

The body of a missing Bonney Lake woman was found in her home on Lake Tapps this morning. Her boyfriend was arrested for investigation of homicide, according to KIRO-TV.
