Kennewick Police Arrest Suspect Who Fled From Slow-Speed Chase
You can run but you can't hide. Kennewick Police arrested a man who fled from a slow-speed chase yesterday.
Daniel J. Doyle was arrested without incident at a local hotel. Doyle will be booked on his outstanding warrants and eluding the police. Additional charges may be filed pending the execution of a search warrant on the vehicle Daniel was observed driving.
We posted about the incident yesterday and here are the details of the original case:
Daniel had a Felony Warrant for Possession with intent to Dispense or Distribute Fentanyl; four Misdemeanor Warrants for Failure to Appear Driving with a Suspended License 3rd; and active Probable Cause to arrest on charges of Eluding.
Because Daniel was known to elude, Officers prepared spike strips in the area of W 27th Ave and S Olympia Street prior to initiating the traffic stop. Officers activated their emergency equipment, Daniel fled at a high rate of speed striking the spike strips which initially appeared to have been ineffective.
Believing that the vehicle may be equipped with run-flat tires the pursuit was terminated. A very short time later, the vehicle was observed damaged and traveling at a slow speed. Because of this new information, Officers were authorized to re-initiate a pursuit.
For the next hour, Officers pursued Daniel at a slow rate of speed. Multiple attempts to deploy additional spike strips were successful, but Daniel refused to stop despite having four flat tires and spike strips lodged in the undercarriage.
With no signs of stopping, just after midnight, the decision was made to terminate the pursuit a second time. Less than 400 meters from where Officers deactivated their emergency equipment, Daniel brought the vehicle to a stop and fled on foot into the Monopoly Park area.
Kennewick Police apprehended Doyle late Thursday night at roughly 11:25 PM according to the police report. You can read more details about the case here.
