Bad guys can run, but not very far | TheNewsTribune.com | Tacoma, WA
Officers tried to stop a car for improper headlights in the 21000 block of Highway 410 about 2:45 a.m. The car, which records showed was stolen, didn’t stop, and the pursuit began.
At one point, an officer tried to force the car into a spin. The fleeing driver rammed the patrol car three times, returned to the road and fled. An officer eventually spun the fleeing car, which hit another car and stalled, ending the 17-minute chase.
Officers arrested the 28-year-old driver, who told officers he’d run away because he “needed a few more minutes with my girl.”
