‘Egger Guy’ gets second warrant

No-show at sentencing

PORT ANGELES — It took 34 seconds Thursday for a judge to issue a second $50,000 bench warrant for the arrest of Jeffery Michael Dunn, a former Clallam Bay resident who pleaded guilty to a hate crime as well as assault and drug charges but who has yet to show up for sentencing.

Judge Lauren Erickson of the Clallam County Superior Court ordered his arrest after Dunn, 25, failed to appear in person or respond on Zoom to be sentenced for possession with intent to deliver marijuana.

He operated an illegal marijuana grow operation at his home on Hoko-Ozette Road, where the State Patrol confiscated 482 plants and two small bags of processed pot, according to a probable cause statement.

Dunn’s father said Tuesday in court while being sentenced on a charge related to the grow operation that his son was working at a Montana cattle ranch.

Erickson issued the first $50,000 warrant Tuesday after Dunn did not appear for sentencing on a hate crime charge and four fourth-degree assault charges for throwing eggs at Black Lives Matter protesters at the county courthouse June 13, 2020.

If arrested, Dunn must post $50,000 bail on each charge to be released.

The warrants will be placed on state and national criminal data bases accessible to Montana law enforcement if Dunn is questioned or arrested.

Authorities had allowed Dunn to leave the state of Washington.

He waived extradition as a condition of leaving the state, county Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Zachary Snipe said Thursday.

While yelling racial and homophobic slurs, Dunn hit four women and aimed the projectiles at a Black woman and her family who said the incident traumatized her and her grandchildren.

He posted a Facebook profile photo of himself throwing the eggs, bragging he was “that egger guy,” according to the probable cause statement.

Lawyer William Payne of Sequim, representing Dunn, did not return a call for comment Thursday on whether Dunn intends to return to Clallam County for sentencing or where in Montana his client is living.

Under the plea deals, Dunn would be sentenced to 30 days in jail converted to 240 hours of community service on the drug charge and 14 days in jail and 240 hours of community service on the hate crime and assault charges.

Erickson does not have to follow the recommendations.
