Everett man allegedly rams deputies’ cars with pickup truck

He reportedly told officers, “I’m going to do whatever I need to do to get out of going to jail.”

EVERETT — Two Snohomish County deputies’ cars were intentionally rammed Sunday night by an Everett man in a stolen F-250 pickup, according to police reports.

The sheriff’s deputies were in the Silver Lake neighborhood when they noticed a truck that had been reported as stolen. When two people got into the Ford, the police tried to pull it over in the 12200 block of 10th Drive SE. At first, the driver seemed to oblige. He stuck his hands out the window.

One of the deputies was getting out of his car, when the driver reportedly threw the two-ton truck into reverse and slammed into the front of the patrol car. The deputy got back into the driver’s seat just in time to avoid getting run over by his car door.

The other deputy attempted to use his car to block the truck from escaping. The Ford driver crashed into that car as well, court papers say.

The first deputy pulled his car forward and pinned the truck so it couldn’t move anymore. The suspect got out of the passenger window and started running, according to court papers. The deputies chased him down and arrested him.

Deputies asked the man, 33, if he would be willing to answer some questions. He allegedly responded: “What do you think? I did 10 years. I’m not saying (expletive).”

Then he reportedly told them, “I’m going to do whatever I need to do to get out of going to jail.”

The truck’s passenger reported that his head banged against the window and that he lost hearing during the incident. He declined aid. He told deputies he’d asked the Everett man about the truck’s punched ignition, but was told it wasn’t stolen, court papers say.

The driver was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of first-degree assault, vehicular assault and possession of a stolen vehicle.

He previously served years in prison for multiple burglaries and possession of a stolen vehicle.
