Local briefly: Car chase ends with arrest in Lynnwood

LYNNWOOD — A low-speed car chase that began in Lake Stevens on Monday afternoon ended in Lynnwood when Washington State troopers bumped the car to a stop and the driver was subdued after receiving an electric shock.

A 44-year-old Lynnwood man drove a 1992 Chrysler New Yorker through a Lake Stevens stop sign, then tried to force a Lake Stevens police cruiser off the road, Washington State Patrol Sgt. Kirk Rudeen said.

The Lake Stevens Police Department called for help, and state troopers followed the man as he drove south on I-5 to the 164th Street SW exit, Rudeen said.

As the Chrysler turned onto Ash Way, state troopers nudged the car from behind, causing it to turn around and stall, Rudeen said. None of the vehicles involved were damaged.

The man was uncooperative when he was removed from his vehicle. He was zapped with an electric shock delivered by Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies, Rudeen said.

The man was driving with a revoked license and had several warrants out for his arrest, Rudeen said.

Two accidents snarl Highway 99 traffic

Traffic on southbound Highway 99 in Lynnwood was snarled twice Monday by accidents that both involved cars slamming into power poles.

The first accident happened about 9:15 a.m. near 174th Street SW when a 37-year-old woman drove her car into a utility pole. The woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for observation. Police are investigating whether drugs were involved. The accident blocked three of four lanes for a few hours.

The second accident happened about 2 p.m. in the 16700 block when a 45-year-old Bainbridge Island woman in Chevy Suburban collided with a Senior Services of Snohomish County van and then hit a utility pole.

Two of three senior passengers onboard were taken to Stevens Hospital in Edmonds for observation. The driver and other passenger were uninjured.

The woman was cited for trying to make a left turn against traffic. She and her two daughters, ages 12 and 8, were not hurt. Their dog, Sam, sustained minor injuries to his teeth.

Snohomish County PUD crews inspected the utility pole. They were in the area already, working on the first damaged pole.

Mukilteo: 4 arrested after fight near park

Four people were arrested for assault after a fight Sunday near Lighthouse Park, officials said.

Police were called about 8:15 p.m. to reports of several juveniles fighting in the area, said Mukilteo police Cmdr. Chuck Macklin.

A group of around 10 teenagers were found and three boys, ages 15 to 17, were arrested, along with an 18-year-old Marysville man.

The juveniles were booked into the Denney Juvenile Justice Center and the 18-year-old was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of assault, Macklin said.

Police don’t know what sparked the fight and are investigating possible gang connections, he said. None of the people involved were from Mukilteo.
