The bike, belonging to Sam’s Tavern across the street from the pizza joint, had apparently been pushed across the street.

Suspect Drops Pants, Attacks Staff at Dick’s

Employees at the Broadway Dick’s Drive-In now have 100% real beef with a woman who dropped her pants and attacked staff Wednesday evening.
Staff at the Dick’s on Broadway and E. Denny Way called police at about 5:30 PM after the woman began harassing customers and refused when a manager asked her to leave the property. Instead, the woman grabbed a condiment holder and a charity donation box off Dick’s front counter and hurled them at employees. The woman struck one staff member in the arm, scratching him.
When officers arrived at the scene, a witness also told them the woman pulled her pants down and performed a very lewd act in front of Dick’s.
Officers arrested the woman—who reportedly caused $75 worth of damage during the incident—and booked her into the King County Jail for assault and harassment.
