STATELINE. - Idaho State Police arrested 4 suspects who fled on foot after a pursuit that crisscrossed the Idaho/Washington border.

At 4:36 Friday Idaho State Police initiated a traffic pursuit on a vehicle driving recklessly northbound on Hwy. 95 at milepost 422.  The suspect failed to yield for police and drove west on a country road crossing the border into Washington.   The driver of the car drove onto I-90 at Liberty Lake and started driving back towards Idaho.

During the pursuit the vehicle reached speeds in excess of 100 MPH and police observed beer cans being thrown from the windows of the car.

Authorities used a 'spike strip' in an attempt to bring the chase to an end near the weigh station at the Idaho/Washington boarder.  The 'spike strip' punctured the two driver-side tires on the suspect's vehicle.  The suspect tried to force his way through heavy traffic on the bridge crossing into Idaho sideswiping two vehicles.  He then lost control of his vehicle and spun out coming to rest on the right shoulder of the roadway at which time the driver and 3 passengers got out of the car and fled on foot.

With the help of a K9 unit police quickly apprehended the three passengers who ran from the car.  One of the fleeing suspects was bitten by the K9 dog.  The passengers have been identified as 18-year-old Louise Charley of Desmet, Idaho, 18-year-old Molly Matt of Coeur d'Alene and 21-year-old Johnny Matt of Tensed, Idaho.

The driver fled on foot south towards Spokane River. Officers and dogs searched the area for about one hour before calling off the manhunt at 7 p.m Friday.  He was later spotted in the Pleasant View area where he was arrested without incident just after 8 p.m.  He has been identified as 17-year-old Timothy R. Allen of Worley Idaho.  All subjects have been charged with numerous felony and misdemeanor charges.

Traffic on eastbound I-90 was backed-up to the Liberty Lake off-ramp for several hours while the search was conducted.

Members of the Idaho State Patrol, Kootenai County Sheriff's Office, Coeur d'Alene Police Department, Coeur d'Alene Tribal Police, U.S. Marshall's Office, Spokane County Sheriff's Office. Washington State Patrol. Liberty Lake Police Department and the U.S. Forest Service took part in the pursuit and search for the driver.
