Man arrested after allegedly ramming patrol car with pickup on Vashon Island

An overnight manhunt on Vashon Island led to the Sunday morning arrest of a man who allegedly rammed his pickup into a patrol car and is suspected of several other crimes, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

A press release issued Sunday morning gave this account of the incident:

Deputies responded to a domestic violence call involving a mother and her adult son at about 6 p.m. Saturday.

While responding, police received several other calls regarding the same male, including a road rage incident, threats and vandalism.

Deputies located the man in the 9800 block of Southwest Windmill Road, where he allegedly rammed his pickup repeatedly into a deputy’s vehicle. The deputy fired several shots, but the suspect fled unharmed.

With the assistance of resident deputies who live on the island and patrol resources from Burien and White Center, the suspect was located in an unoccupied house about 4:30 a.m. Sunday in the 24600 block of Dockton Road Southwest.

The suspect attempted to run and police deployed a Taser before taking the man into custody.

No one involved in the search was injured. Detectives are investigating the deputy-involved shooting as well as the alleged crimes committed by the suspect.
