Police: Suspect hid, waited for chance to ram patrol car

The man allegedly yelled “I’m going to (expletive) kill you” while fighting with Everett officers.

EVERETT — A 24-year-old man apparently hid and waited before he rammed his car into an Everett police vehicle Friday morning, according to the arrest report.

The Everett man had parked his car behind a fence, headlights off, at the police department’s south precinct, officers reported. It was around 7 a.m. and still dark.

Two police officers got into a car and were backing out of a parking spot when they saw the suspect accelerate, court papers say. The officer drove in reverse, trying to avoid the other car.

The suspect crashed into them head-on. Then he allegedly got out and started to fight with the officers, yelling “I’m going to (expletive) kill you,” at least three times. He hit both officers in the face at least once, records say.

The struggle lasted several minutes, according to a statement from Everett police, and an electronic stun gun was used to subdue the man.

The officers were treated at a hospital for minor injuries.

“As a department, we are very disturbed by what happened,” Chief Dan Templeman said in a Friday statement. “This could have ended tragically, but I’m proud our officers showed restraint and professionalism during the incident.”

It wasn’t the first time the man had apparently threatened someone. A no-contact order was filed against the suspect by his ex-girlfriend in early January.

He had reportedly sent her several threatening messages, according to the petition, including a voicemail saying “your sister, your roommate, your boyfriend, everyone is getting beat up.”

The man was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of first and third-degree assault, malicious mischief and felony harassment.

Police are still investigating the suspect’s motivation.
