Washington Man Pleads Guilty To Olympic National Park Incident

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) – A Washington state man accused of assaulting a woman at Olympic National Park and ranting about an impending revolution has pleaded guilty to interfering with a government communication system.

The Seattle Times reports the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Western Washington said Caleb Chapman disabled the Olympic National Park radio communications site at the Blue Mountain summit in 2021.

A few hours before, Chapman, of Port Angeles, went to a stranger’s home with a handgun and an AR-15 style rifle while high on methamphetamine.

He handed the stranger a letter outlining political concerns and his belief that a revolution would ensue.

As part of a plea agreement prosecutors will recommend no more than 10 months in prison.
