Inmate at Island County Jail Taken To Hospital After Apparent Suicide Attempt
February 12, 2017



Chronicle staff

(COUPVILLE, WA.) -- A 33-year old inmate at the Island County Jail in Coupville, WA was rushed to a local hospital Friday afternoon Feb. 10 after "an apparent suicide attempt," said a statement issued by the Island County Sheriff's office.

Authorities say the unidentified man was found about 2:00 pm "unresponsive just outside his cell."

The statement said the inmate attempted to hang himself while other inmates were out at visitation and was located when the cellmate returned about 20 minutes later.

Corrections employees immediately began CPR on the man and 911 was called for medical help. The inmate was transported to Whidbey Health (Hospital) where he is being treated.

The sheriff's office did not identify the inmate in its statement but the Skagit Valley Herald/GoSkagit.com quoted county sheriff Will Reichardt as saying the injured inmate was Deputy Sheriff Russell Whitmore, who is on paid administrative leave after he was arrested Jan. 28 and charged in Skagit County District Court the next day with one count of second-degree assault for allegedly choking his wife.

The report said Whitmore was in the intensive care unit at WhidbeyHealth Medical Center late Friday afternoon.

After Whitmore's arrest, charges of fourth-degree assault and unlawful imprisonment related to the same domestic violence incident were added in Skagit County Superior Court along with an increased bail of $250,000, according to the newspaper's report.
