CRIME BRIEFS Man arrested in fatal June crash A Bremerton teen was arrested Monday in connection with a June car accident that killed two other Kitsap County teenagers in Mason County in June. Alexander Bradley Mann, 19, of the 7400 block of Bridlevale Boulevard Northwest in Bremerton, was booked at 10:36 a.m. Monday on suspicion of two counts of vehicular homicide while driving under the influence and two counts of vehicular assault. David Michael Dudley Jr., 19, of Bremerton, and Alena J. Pepi, 18, of Port Orchard, died as a result of the collision, according to Mason County Coroner Wes Stockwell. A total of seven people were riding in the Chevrolet S-10 truck on U.S. Forest Service Road 23, 18 miles north of Shelton on June 1. Just after 7:30 a.m., the truck hit a tree. Five people were riding in the bed of the truck, and were ejected. Mann, the driver, was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after the accident. After the accident, the Mason Coun- ty Sheriffs Office told the Journal that alcohol and marijuana may have played a role in the crash. Man arrested on kidnapping, robbery charges The Mason County Sheriffs Office arrested a man Monday evening after a woman accused him of kidnapping and robbing her. Frankie Lee Metcalf, 50, of the 300 block of Southeast Klah Che Min Drive in Shelton, was booked at 6:38 p.m. on suspicion of kidnapping in the second degree and robbery in the sec- ond degree. According to the Sheriffs Office, Metcalf was giving a woman a ride to the Lucky Dog Casino on his motor- cycle Monday evening. The woman told detectives Metcalf went down Sunnyside Road, rather than straight to the casino. Metcalf then stopped the bike and demanded sexual favors in exchange for the ride, according to the Sheriffs Office. The woman told detectives Metcalf tried to take her cellphone when she attempted to call 911. The woman ran away, and con- tacted the Skokomish Public Safety Department. Metcalf was arrested by the Mason County Sheriffs Office and denied in- volvement in the incident, according to the sheriffs office. Metcalf made his first appearance in Mason County Superior Court on Tuesday and was granted $30,000 bail.
