Protesters show up at Seattle police chief's home in Snohomish County

The incident occurred on Saturday night. The Sheriff Adam Fortney was notified around 8:30 p.m. and by the time deputies arrived, most of the protesters were already dispersing or already gone.

"When the people showed up to my house, it certainly felt very personal about me," said Chief Best who was not home at the time. "It really does seem like a mob mentality, and bullying, to intimidate a public official."

Jamie and Whitney Roulstone live on the quiet street and said 30 to 40 vehicles were wrapped around the corner.

Neighbors buckled down and used their own vehicles to block the protesters from moving further down the street where Chief Best's home is located.

"It was not peaceful. They were here to intimidate. Scare people. Scare children. There were children out there and they were asking them what schools they went to. They were yelling the most horrible things  you've ever heard in your entire life," said wife Jamie.
