Members of the Tacoma Police Department’s gang unit arrested a man overnight after he allegedly led officers on a pursuit, hit a parked car and then crashed into a fence.

Gang officers had received information that the man, who was wanted in a previous shooting and was believed to be armed with a weapon, was in the Hilltop area, police reported. Officers spotted the man in a vehicle shortly after midnight and followed the vehicle as it drove into the South End.

When officers tried to stop the car, it eluded them. The car hit a parked vehicle and kept going, police reported.

The car then crashed into the fence of a nearby school. The suspect ran away but was later captured.

Officers booked the man into Pierce County Jail on suspicion of felony eluding, unlawful drug possession, hit-and-run, obstructing, resisting and the outstanding felony warrant.

    I agree “one more slimebag off the streets”. I can’t understand why they didn’t tack on destruction of government property for ruining the school fence. LOCK THAT THING UP FOR A LONG TIME.

  4. Thank your neighborhood drug ABUSER and his/her drug dealer. If drug abusers would just obey the law, so much of our crime problems would vanish.

    Yes, that includes YOU, Don. YOUR behavior astounds me, particularly after YOUR father killed himself with alcohol at 48.

    Is Don the perp in this story? Just curious.
