A Lynnwood police officer attempted to pull over a Chevrolet pickup when the driver sped away, police spokeswoman Shannon Sessions said. The pursuit started around 1:30 p.m.
The chase went into Mountlake Terrace, where the man drove down a ravine and into Terrace Creek Park along 48th Avenue W. The man then got out of the car and ran.
A police dog search soon led officers to him in a nearby swamp, Sessions said.
The man was booked for investigation of attempting to elude police and unlawful possession of a firearm. He also had a felony arrest warrant out of California.
