EVERETT — A male was taken into custody Sunday night after allegedly running away from and fighting law enforcement on the 128th Street SW overpass above I-5.

He was reportedly acting suspicious at a nearby business on 4th Avenue W, according to Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies found him and learned he had outstanding warrants. But the male allegedly fought with the officers and ran away.

He made it to the busy bridge over the freeway, where he was met by other responding law enforcement. A deputy was injured and taken to a nearby hospital with injuries that were not life threatening. The male was treated for minor injuries at a hospital as well, before being taken to jail.
