On Saturday night (Oct. 26), King County Sheriff’s deputies chased – and successfully stopped – a car on SR-509 after witnessing it traveling too slow and weaving across the roadway.
“Believing the driver was DUI, the deputy tried to stop the car and the chase was on,” said KCSO Officer Charlie Akers. “Before the Guardian 1 (helicopter) arrived, the chase exited the freeway and went down surface streets. The driver also evaded spike strips that were deployed. A PIT maneuver was used when the lead deputy believed the driver was slowing down to do another u-turn down an on-ramp in the wrong direction.”
Here’s the chase as shot from Guardian 1:
