15200 blk Pacific Ave S, Spanaway
A patrol deputy pulled up next to a car at a stop light and saw that the female driver was smoking methamphetamine. When the woman saw the deputy, she immediately sped away. The deputy turned on his lights and siren to initiate a traffic stop for DUI, but the woman kept going. Since DUI is a pursuable offense, the deputy continued to follow her. He attempted a PIT maneuver, but the woman used a specific technique (known only to people who elude police) to reduce its effectiveness. A second PIT attempt was successful in disabling the vehicle. The 32-year-old driver was arrested and transported to the hospital for a blood draw. At the hospital, she told the deputy that she “knew” police were not allowed to chase people, as long as they drove fast. She was booked into jail for DUI, eluding, and possession of a stolen vehicle.
