SPOKANE -- A Spokane County sheriff's spokesman says a parked deputy was watching traffic in the Spokane Valley when a vehicle zoomed by at what the deputy estimated was nearly 90 mph in a 35 mph zone.
Two deputies gave chase with emergency lights flashing but the speeding driver kept heading east on Monday. Liberty Lake officers set out spike strips but the driver avoided them.
The vehicle finally stopped at a gas station once it reached Idaho.
Deputy Craig Chamberlin said once the driver was in custody, he acknowledged he knew he was being chased by law enforcement officers. Asked why he didn't stop, Chamberlin said the man replied: "because I wanted to come to Idaho and get out of Washington."
The spokesman said 23-year-old Kevin Berry was booked as a fugitive and will likely face a charge of eluding.
