Tacoma woman accused of fleeing police, dragging Snohomish County deputy

Staff writerDecember 23, 2013 

A 24-year-old Tacoma woman was arrested in Bothell early Monday morning after she allegedly tried to run from police, dragging a Snohomish County Sheriff's Office deputy alongside her car in the process.

The deputy contacted the woman in her car at 4:20 a.m. at Ninth Avenue SE and Filbert Drive in Bothell. The two struggled, and the woman tried to leave the area in her car. That's when the deputy was dragged before falling to the ground, according to Snohomish County Sheriff's Office reports.

The deputy was able to get back to his car, and followed the woman to a nearby grocery store parking lot where he used a maneuver with his car to try and stop her from driving away. The woman rammed the deputy's car, but the deputy was able to arrest the woman, who continued to fight after being detained.

Pepper spray and use of a Taser were needed to subdue the woman, according to sheriff's office reports.

The deputy wasn't injured and the woman was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment before she was taken to jail. Police believe the woman was involved with mail theft.
