A Kennwick resident is in big trouble after allegedly stealing two different trucks, eluding police, and crashing one, all while driving drunk in Richland.
The story starts with Richland police trying to pull over 31-year-old Mark A. Barnett while he was driving a stolen truck in the early morning. Barnett refused to pull over and tried to elude police crashing near Harris and Spring streets, according to the Richland Police.
Barnett managed to run away from the scene and while police and a K-9 unit were looking for him, he allegedly stole another truck.
Eventually, the second stolen truck was found and Barnett was arrested near 1203 Gowen Ave.
