Now to get the suspect, officers and K-9 over the fence.


The suspect comes over first.


An Everett and Marysville Police officer take the man into custody after he gets over the fence.

This is not an unusual way to handle a K-9 during a chase for a suspect.


The K-9 is happy to have all four paws back on the ground.


Finally the K-9 handler comes over the fence.

Traffic on Interstate 5 through Everett was shut down this afternoon after a man with felony warrants ran from Marysville Police.

Shortly before 6:00 PM a Marysville Police officer spotted the man wanted for felony warrants driving in Marysville. The man would not pull over for the officer and a chase began southbound on Interstate 5.

WSP Troopers and Sheriff’s Deputies assisted Marysville Police in containing traffic on I-5.

Near 52nd and Lowell the man bailed out of his car on southbound I-5 and ran east across the northbound lanes of I-5 and over a fence into Lowell with Marysville police in foot pursuit.

For a short time WSP shut down both directions of I-5 causing a significant traffic impact.

The suspect was crashing through the woods and sticker bushes between I-5 and Lenora street. The Marysville K-9 and other Marysville and Everett officers were able to locate the man hiding in a tree stump and take him into custody.

The next big challenge was to get the man out of the woods, over fences and into a patrol car. Officers were able to accomplish that and also had to get the K-9 over the fence.

Neither the suspect, K-9 nor officers were injured. The man is expected to be booked into the Snohomish County Jail on multiple felony charges.

Here are some MyEverettNews.com photos of the involved parties getting over the fence.
