REDMOND, Wash. — A woman who Redmond police described as a “prolific criminal offender known to all Eastside agencies” was arrested in a parking lot Tuesday night.
Witnesses were startled when a Bellevue officer accidentally fired his gun during the arrest, but no one was hurt.
Bellevue plainclothes officers were helping Kirkland police track a woman with numerous felony warrants when they found her in a car in a parking lot in Bear Creek Village just before 6 p.m.
When officers removed her from the car and took her into custody, a dog inside the car jumped out and attacked another dog that was nearby, according to Redmond police.
When a Bellevue officer jumped in to break up the dog fight, he accidentally fired a gunshot into the pavement.
Redmond police were not involved but are investigating.
Redmond police detectives are asking anyone who witnessed the incident to contact them at 425-556-2500 or email@example.com.
