A Tacoma woman was arrested in Bothell early this morning after she struggled twice with a Snohomish County Sheriff’s deputy, dragged him with her car and later rammed his police cruiser with her car.
Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies were called to the area of Ninth Avenue Southeast and Filbert Drive just before 4:30 a.m. on a report of mail being stolen. When a deputy tried to confront the woman who was still in her car, there was a struggle and the woman drove off, dragging the deputy for a short distance, according to the sheriff’s office.
The deputy got into his patrol car and chased the woman. In the Canyon Park QFC parking lot in 22800 block of Bothell Everett Highway, the deputy performed a PIT maneuver to get the woman’s car to spin to a stop, the sheriff’s office said. The woman then drove her car into the police cruiser.
As the deputy tried to arrest the woman, the two struggled again. The deputy then used a Taser and pepper spray to subdue the woman, sheriff’s spokeswoman Shari Ireton wrote in a news release.
The woman, 24, was taken to a local hospital. She’ll be booked into the Snohomish County Jail later today, Ireton said.
The deputy was not hurt.
