TACOMA, Wash. — A 36-year-old man suspected of driving a stolen vehicle was arrested Thursday night after leading officers on a chase from Ruston until he crashed at 74th Street and Tacoma Mall Boulevard, police said.
Police said it started at the Point Defiance boat launch with a call from the guy who was in the vehicle and had a boat in tow.
When a Ruston officer tried to contact the man he took off.
Tacoma police said they received calls from witnesses who said a Range Rover was pulling a boat and narrowly missed people and other vehicles.
The driver at some point hit two vehicles, ended up crashing into another vehicle and landed into a ditch, police said.
A driver in another vehicle suffered injuries due to the crash, police said.
Police said the man tried to escape but was taken into custody for investigation of first-degree assault, driving under the influence, felony eluding, and some other charges.
