Deputies with the Benton County Sheriff's Office assisted Washington State Patrol after receiving reports of a man pointing a firearm at motorists and then firing the weapon into the air on Sunday.
After the vehicle was located, the driver fled, leading officers on a chase from I-82 onto Coffin Road and eventually onto Nine Canyon/Haney Road. A spike strip maneuver was attempted to stop the vehicle, however, it was unsuccessful.
Because of the danger to the public, a Pursuit Intervention Technique (PIT) maneuver was performed.
This WAS successful and the occupants of the car were detained and taken into custody. There were no injuries.
