Injured Lynnwood cop is expected to recover

LYNNWOOD -- A Lynnwood police officer who was seriously injured during a struggle with a suspect Sunday is expected to recover.
Officer Ryan Hoirup, 28, underwent surgery Monday to mend multiple fractures to his pelvis, police spokeswoman Shannon Sessions said.
During Sunday's struggle, he and the suspect fell down an 18-foot embankment.
"While Officer Hoirup will have a long road to recovery, we are thankful that his condition isn't more dire," Sessions said.
Hoirup was involved in a police chase Sunday evening along 196th Street SW.
Officers were after a man wanted on a felony arrest warrant who had run from a traffic stop.
The suspect suffered a broken wrist in the fall. He was arrested and booked for investigation of second-degree assault.
Hoirup is a five-year veteran of the department. Lynnwood police are grateful for all the warm wishes from the community for Hoirup and his family, Sessions said.
