A man wanted for domestic violence led Burien Police on a high-speed chase Sunday night (Dec. 14) before crashing and rolling his car atÂ the big curve at the south end ofÂ Ambaum Blvd. SW near SW 156th. It all started after a 911 call around 8 p.m. from a woman complaining about herÂ ex-husband harassing her at her apartmentÂ near SW 132nd and Ambaum. The suspect apparently had brokenÂ the woman’sÂ car windows, then wentÂ upstairs and broke windows in her apartment. The suspect then took off. Police responded to the 911 call and took a report. The woman didn’t suffer any injures, and police left. Then aroundÂ 10 p.m., the woman called again when the suspect returned to herÂ apartment. Police say that this time he started physically assaulting her. Police responded again, and a car matching the suspect was seen leaving theÂ parking lot. A deputy tried to follow but the carÂ got away. The officerÂ went back to speak with the woman and her daughter, and the car returned. Another officer showed up at this time and yelled at the suspectÂ to stop. He didnâ€™t, then backed up, went around other officer in the parking lot, drove out onto Ambaum, and officers chased him south on Ambaum with lights & sirens at dangerous high speeds. Police told The B-Town Blog that the suspect ranÂ red lights at SW 144th, SW 146th and SW 148th Streets before they called off the pursuit as it was too dangerous. Police continued south on Ambaum at regular speeds, then when they arrived at the big curve, they discovered that the suspect hadÂ lost control of his vehicle. Police found debris in the road, and that the car had rolled over off the side of Ambaum. Police discovered thatÂ the suspect had been thrown into the passenger seat of the crashed vehicle. He resisted arrest, and tried to get back into the crashed carâ€™s driver seat to try to drive off. By this time the crashed car had beenÂ blocked in by cruisers. Police finally got the suspectÂ out, andÂ he wasÂ takenÂ into custody andÂ admitted toÂ Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Ambaum wasÂ closed for a couple hours for investigation. The suspectÂ survived the crash, and was booked on multiple felony charges for eluding police. He also had warrant in Kent for traffic violations.]]>
