Man serving half his prison term out of custody back behind bars

EVERETT — A Seattle man’s legal troubles are adding up after he allegedly rammed a Snohomish County sheriff’s deputy’s patrol car last month.

Zachary Manyon, 28, was on community custody under a special sentencing alternative for drug offenders when the incident happened in south Everett.

He was convicted in 2012 of multiple counts of burglary in King County. He was allowed to serve half his prison sentence out of custody, according to court records.

He is back behind bars in the Snohomish County Jail. Prosecutors recently charged him with second-degree assault in connection with a violent encounter with a sheriff’s deputy.

The incident started out as a traffic stop Nov. 25. A deputy noticed that Manyon was driving a car without a front license plate.

The deputy pulled behind the car as Manyon turned in the parking lot of Wynnwood Condominiums in the 900 block of 132nd Street. SW. Manyon drove to the back of the complex and stopped in front of a locked gate that separates two buildings.

Manyon allegedly rammed the gate and sped through the complex. The deputy was familiar with the layout of the parking lot and knew there was only one exit. He met up with suspect at a dead end.

Manyon stopped but put his car in reverse. Instead of backing around the patrol car, Manyon drove at the deputy and slammed into the right front side of the car, Snohomish County deputy prosecutor Toni Montgomery wrote.

Manyon drove forward, struck something else and then backed into the patrol car again. The suspect’s car continued backward until it struck something else in its path.

The deputy decided to ram the suspect’s vehicle to stop it from causing more damage or injuring anyone, Montgomery wrote.

The deputy hit the driver’s side door of Manyon’s car. Manyon jumped out of the front passenger side door and ran. He jumped a fence and was running toward the intersection at 132nd Street SW and Ash Way. He was stopped by the deputy’s dog, Ronin.

The deputy handcuffed Manyon and removed a knife from a sheath in his belt.

The defendant was being held on $100,000 bail.
