According to court records, which fill two 3-inch-thick folders at the Grays Harbor District Court Clerk's Office, Kravetz was arrested in May 2005 and charged with domestic-violence assault and interfering with a domestic-violence report. Dougherty had called 911, saying her son was parked outside her house threatening suicide. Earlier in the day, he'd punched his mother in the arm when she prevented him from taking her car to Hood Canal. He then tore the phone from the wall when she attempted to call police, the records say.
"Steve has mental-health issues but refuses to seek help," Dougherty wrote in a police statement.
After his arrest, Kravetz was taken to Mark Reed Hospital in McCleary for an involuntary mental-health evaluation. There, he allegedly jumped out of a bathroom window but was caught after a brief foot chase and had to be physically restrained so hospital staff could evaluate him, the court records say. He was charged with malicious mischief and third-degree escape.Grays Harbor stabbing suspect seen as potential threat in 2007
