Suspect arrested after police pursuit

SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Police Officers Ames and Yinger spotted a stolen Dodge Caravan in the area of Cook St. and Empire Ave Saturday night around 9:50. Just a few minutes prior, they responded to a report of a stolen Dodge Caravan and were in the area searching for the vehicle.

When police attempted a traffic stop of the stolen van, the suspect fled from the scene and immediately began to drive recklessly.  Police initiated a pursuit and continued through several residential and arterial streets. Police say the driver continued to show no regard for public safety and intentionally navigated into oncoming traffic on several occasions. During the pursuit, the suspect intentionally attempted to ram a responding police vehicle head on according to police. 

 
Police say the suspect driver continued to intentionally create an imminent risk to public safety.  As the suspect drove northbound on Division St, he entered the southbound lanes of Division St. at Walton Ave. In an effort to stop the suspect', and to reduce the immediate risk to public safety, officers initiated a PIT (Pursuit Immobilization Technique). When the vehicle came to a stop, the suspect reportedly attempted to ram patrol cars in an effort to get away. The suspect was taken into custody and placed under arrest. No injuries were reported as a result of the pursuit.
 
The suspect, Charlie C. Schroeder, 30-years-old, of Spokane was arrested and booked on three counts of 1st Degree Assault, Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle, and Attempt to Elude.
