Spokane Police And Sheriff Helicopter Arrest Pursuit Suspect

SPOKANE, Wash. - Early Sunday morning, Spokane Police Department Corporal Kurt Vigesaa attempted to stop an Oldsmobile Cutlass driving recklessly in the area of Lee and Buckeye. The sole occupant of the car was also suspected of possible criminal activity at the Zip Trip at Perry and Illinois.

The car did not stop for Corporal Vigesaa, and a pursuit began. The suspect eventually made it to I-90 and headed eastbound in the westbound lanes. The pursuit was terminated due to the safety issue it presented to the public.

The Spokane County Sheriff's Office Air One helicopter responded and located the Oldsmobile on the freeway. They observed the suspect flee from the car and run south across I-90. The helicopter assisted officers pursuing on foot in locating the suspect as he made his way across the freeway and into a backyard on 3rd and Crestline. The suspect, Nathan Mitchell, was taken into custody without incident.

Mitchell was booked into the Spokane County Jail for Attempt to Elude, Possession of a Controlled Substance (heroin), and two Felony and one Misdemeanor Warrant. Officers were also able to locate stolen credit cards Mitchell had discarded on I-90.
