Skateboarders weren’t worried about cops on this afternoon. One annoyed neighbor allegedly threatened to kill a group of skateboarders and attacked them with an aluminum bat last week for doing tricks near the steps of his home, the police said. The enraged man “decided to take matters into his own hands,” cops said. The skateboarders claimed he attempted to crush their knees with the bat. They also said one swing of the bat hit a skateboard, then sprung up and hit one of skateboarder’s knees, cops said. He also tossed one of the skateboards over a fence, the victims said. Responding officers took the bat from the suspect. He was booked on assault charges and for threats against life, police said.

A 23-year-old man was arrested shortly before 11 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 24, after allegedly striking another man over the head with a skateboard.
The victim was standing in front of KeyBank at East Holly and North State streets when he was hit, apparently unprovoked, with a skateboard, said Mark Young, spokesman for the Bellingham Police Department. The victim, who had a large bump and a cut on his forehead, was treated by medics, Young said. He provided a description of the suspect, including what clothes he was wearing.
The suspect was later located carrying a skateboard at East Holly and Railroad Avenue, Young said. Daniel Meador was booked into Whatcom County Jail for second-degree assault and an unrelated Department of Corrections warrant. Meador and the victim both appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, Young said.
