Both the Seattle P-I and KING-TV are reporting about a Saturday-afternoon police pursuit that ended with a car crashing into Sushi Saki, a Des Moines Japanese restaurant.

The incident apparently started when King County Sheriff’s deputies stopped a car in Burien, and an officer spotted what appeared to be a weapon.

The car sped off, and police say it led them on a chase to Des Moines, where it side-swiped two vehicles on Marine View Drive before crashing.

At least five law enforcement officers, including King County sheriff’s deputies, had to handcuff the suspect, who apparently was finally Tasered twice.

According to one witness, at least 19 patrol cars from the Des Moines and Burien police departments and the King County Sheriff’s Office were on the scene.

One arrest was made, but no one was hurt, and Marine View Drive was temporarily closed.
