Hill Watch: Hill Committed After Second Arrest
The News Tribune is reporting that Robert Hill has been involuntarily committed to the Puget Sound mental health hospital Thursday night, after an arrest for inappropriate possession of a fake training gun in the County-City building of Tacoma Olympia. It is reported that Hill pointed the training gun at a guard when passing through security. Hill denies that he pointed his replica at the guard.
The rabbit hole goes deeper when on Wednesday afternoon, Hill passed through security again in Tacoma Olympia, followed by a friend of Hill’s who possessed a real gun registered in the name of Hill’s mother. Hill again denies knowledge of the gun or his colleagues possession of it. Hill was later arrested Thursday morning and committed after a mental health review.
KIRO TV has footage of Hill getting arrested over the replica gun here as well as an in jail interview in which Hill gives his perspective of this week’s events here and the supposed threats against Pierce County Sheriff Pastor Paul.
The Melon attempted to contact Hill, but encountered only his Nextel answering service. More on the Watch as it becomes available.
