Shoplifter Assaults Worker, Speed Away on Motorized Bicycle
A 46-year-old man was arrested Saturday in Kennewick after he allegedly not only shoplifted from Craft Warehouse, but also assaulted an employee. He then tried to outrun cops on a bicycle with a small motor attached, but failed miserably.
Around 4:30pm, police got the call, but while en route also learned the suspect attacked a store worker. Brian Blair was located riding near Edison, east of the store, and when he tried to flee, he was surrounded by patrol cars and quickly apprehended.
He's now in jail facing multiple charges besides the shoplifting. Police cruiser 1, putt putt bike -0-.
