Issaquah police arrest man after officer assault
October 12, 2010
Issaquah police arrested a man the morning of Oct. 11 after a brief struggle near the 700 block of state Route 900.
The officers — a sergeant and a motorcycle officer — stopped the suspect, a 27-year-old man, and approached him along the driver’s side of his vehicle. The suspect refused to exit the vehicle, and a brief struggle ensued.
Police said he then turned the vehicle on and started to drive away, dragging the sergeant for about 100 feet.
Moments later, the vehicle became stuck in a field, and the sergeant and motorcycle officer arrested the suspect.
Police arrested the man on a Utah warrant, plus the second-degree assault from the officer incident, and booked the man into the King County Jail.
Medics transported the sergeant to Overlake Hospital Medical Center in Bellevue, where he was treated and later released. The motorcycle officer and suspect were not injured.
