Tips from the public have led to the arrest of a man suspected of injuring a Snohomish County sheriff’s deputy in a hit and run on May 7 on Highway 2.

The incident happened around noon at the intersection of Highway 2 and Interstate 5. The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office said a white 1998 GMC flatbed truck with a “DDS Construction” logo on the door intentionally backed over the deputy during a traffic stop.

The deputy was treated at a hospital for minor injuries and released later in the day, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

The truck had been reported stolen earlier that morning from a construction site in Everett, the Sheriff’s Office said. The truck was later recovered in Monroe.

The Sheriff’s Office released the surveillance photo (above) of a man described as a “person of interest” in the incident. It was taken in the Clearview area of Snohomish County on the day of the accident.

The Sheriff’s Office said the 33-year-old man was booked into jail on unrelated charges May 13. Calls that came into the Sheriff’s Office tip line after the surveillance photo was published helped in identifying him.

The man charged with second-degree assault, possession of a stolen vehicle, malicious mischief and hit and run.
