Everett, Police Blotter

sheriff car vs. Jeep, Jeep wins

Neither the deputy nor the two guys in the Jeep were hurt. Looks like the Jeep fared better than the patrol car

Here’s the official word from the Sheriff’s Office on today’s wild chase…Man allegedly tries to run over deputy, then leads deputies on pursuit through Lake Stevens and Everett

A pursuit that began in the Lake Stevens area Monday morning ended a little more than 15 minutes later in north Everett.

The incident began about 10:50 a.m. near some ball fields along N. Machias Road. A sheriff’s deputy was parked near the area when he spotted a man in a small passenger car and a woman close by with what appeared to be drugs. Suspecting drug activity, the deputy approached the car. The suspect turned on the engine, revved it and started driving toward the deputy despite being ordered to stop.

The suspect fled with deputies in pursuit. The pursuit went westbound through Lake Stevens, across the trestle and into the city of Everett, where the suspect drove through the Everett Community College Campus. No one on campus was injured.

Shortly after that, one of our deputies got into a collision at 8th Street and Colby Ave. with a Jeep Liberty. Two young men, both Everett Community College students, were in the Jeep. No one was injured in the collision.

Moments later, another deputy performed a PIT maneuver on the suspect vehicle on W. Marine View Drive near Alverson Blvd., ending the pursuit. Both the driver and his female passenger were arrested.

The driver is described as a 38-year-old man with two felony warrants for his arrest. He faces additional booking charges related to trying to run over the deputy and eluding police. The female passenger was allegedly throwing things out the car window during the pursuit. She is 22 years old and has already been booked into the Snohomish County Jail for second-degree rendering criminal assistance and obstructing a law enforcement officer.

The incident remains under investigation. The crash at 8th Street and Colby Ave. is being investigated by the Everett Police Department and the Sheriff’s Office.
