Patrol holds man in I-90 incident, breaking out patrol car window
SNOQUALMIE PASS The Washington State Patrol said a motorist in custody
for a disturbance on Interstate 90 kicked out a patrol car window and
fought with a trooper before being subdued.
The incident began at 9:09 a.m. today with reports that a woman had been
thrown from a car on the eastbound side of the freeway near Easton,
according to a news memo from the patrol.
As troopers raced to the area, a 911 caller reported the suspect vehicle
was now heading west.
Near Snoqualmie Pass, a trooper located and stopped the suspect, placing
the driver in the back of the troopers patrol car.
The suspect then broke out a window and got out of the car, leading to an
altercation that the patrol described as an assault before the suspect
was subdued and rearrested.
The name of the suspect was not released by the patrol. It was also not clear
what the patrol meant in describing the female victim as having been
"thrown" from a car.
