Police: Homicide suspect arrested after high-speed chase, fight

The suspect sped off from deputies on U.S. 2, Highway 9 and Bunk Foss Road before being stopped.

SNOHOMISH — A high-speed chase from Monroe to Snohomish ended with a homicide suspect in custody early Thursday morning.

Deputies with the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office tried to pull over a driver on suspicion of driving under the influence after midnight. The driver allegedly sped off onto westbound U.S. 2, Highway 9, ran a stop light and headed to Bunk Foss Road. The officers performed a PIT maneuver, tapping the vehicle with theirs to get it to spin out, and it crashed into a semi-truck that had stopped in the roadway because of the oncoming emergency lights.

The driver, a 27-year-old suspected of homicide in Montana, allegedly ran away on southbound Highway 9, crawled under the semi and took off down an embankment and into a wooded area. A deputy chasing him deployed his Taser and fought the suspect, who eventually gave up and was arrested, the Sultan Police Department said.

The sheriff’s office provides police services to Sultan under contract.

The suspect was treated for injuries at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett before being taken to Snohomish County Jail for investigation of DUI, eluding police, resisting arrest and being a fugitive of justice for a felony homicide in Montana.
