According to Shoreline police, an officer in a fully marked police car with emergency equipment turned on, attempted to pull over a driver in the vicinity of 185th and Aurora at 1:43 am on Monday for a minor traffic infraction.

Instead of stopping, the driver sped off, reaching speeds of 100 mph and swerving into oncoming traffic lanes. At one point, after leaving Aurora, he attempted to cross the raised median separating the eastbound and westbound lanes along Ballinger Way/North 205th (SR 104), and crashed into bushes and cinder blocks in the front yard of an Edmonds residence. The driver then fled on foot.

As the chase headed north, Shoreline officers called in Edmonds police. Both departments brought in K9 units and the suspect was eventually found hiding under bushes in a yard in the 7100 block of Lake Ballinger Way (SR 104).

The suspect was turned over to Shoreline police, who took him to Swedish/Edmonds hospital (formerly Stevens) for treatment. The suspect was then released into Shoreline police custody, where he was subsequently booked into the King County Jail for investigation of felony eluding, driving with a suspended license and willful intent to evade license tax.

While the pursuit was in process and the crash investigation taking place, officers blocked part of SR 104.
