OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE: A sheriff's deputy escaped injury Tuesday night when his patrol car was rammed by a fleeing suspect wanted on felony arrest warrants.

Deputy Jeff Shover was patrolling north Spokane County about 5 p.m. Tuesday when he saw a white Chevrolet pickup pulling out of a driveway in the 4900 block of East Deer Park-Milan Road.

He attempted to stop the truck believing that wanted fugitive Michael S. Wheeler was the driver. 

Wheeler, 36, is currently wanted on Spokane County warrants charging him with First-Degree Possession of Stolen Property, Possession of Controlled Substance and Second-Degree Trafficking in Stolen Property.

Wheeler is also wanted for Escape from Community Custody on a Washington Dept. of Corrections warrant, and is wanted in Lewis County for Failing to Appear on another criminal charge.

When Shover attempted to stop the pickup by activating his overhead emergency lights, the driver of the pickup took off at high speeds westbound on Eloika Lake Road from Milan-Elk Road. At 5:07 p.m., the truck rammed Shover's patrol car and disabled it.

Shover was not injured, but the patrol car was rendered inoperable.  The pickup was last seen northbound on Valley Road at high speed.  Its tailgate was damaged and hanging down and items were falling from the bed of the truck.

Wheeler is a featured fugitive on the Crime Stoppers Inland Northwest website, and a reward is offered for information that leads to his arrest.  His last known address was 35616 North Highway 395.
