Three teenagers in Washington state were taken into custody for running from the police in an allegedly stolen vehicle while intoxicated.
Just before midnight on February 26, deputies with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department were patrolling in Parkland when they saw a Kia go by that was reportedly being driven over the speed limit. They also believed that the car was being operated unsafely when the driver reportedly began going down the wrong side of the road.
According to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department blotter webpage, deputies had to use stop sticks, and it was believed that the car was going 90 MPH when it hit them. The police additionally used a PIT maneuver to force the driver to slow the car, which had most of its tires deflated. The vehicle spun to a stop, and the driver and two passengers got out.
