Pullman Police handled a wide range of crimes over the past few days, including a reported assault at Stubblefields Bar on Friday night.
A man threw punches at bouncers after being ejected from the bar, Pullman Police Cmdr. Chris Tennant said. While he was not charged, the man was given a city infraction for fighting.

A motorcycle and a car collided Saturday afternoon on Northeast Stadium Way and Northeast Nye Street. Neither motorist was injured in the accident, which occurred when the driver of the motorcycle attempted to pass in a no-passing zone, Tennant said. The motorcyclist was given an infraction for passing in a no-passing zone.

Pullman Police also received a pair of reports regarding possible tree fires Sunday afternoon. The first report was found to be a metal fire pit that was falsely perceived as an uncontrolled fire, while the other was caused by tree limbs contacting a power line and causing sparks. There was no fire emergency when police arrived, so they referred the case to Pullman Fire, Tennant said.

WSU Police dealt with ten alcohol-related ejections during Saturday’s win over Oregon State. The number of ejections decreased by three from last weekend’s game against the Boise State Broncos. WSU Assistant Police Chief Steven Hansen said the number of ejections was “pretty close to average.”
