Spokane Valley Police: Steeplechaser Arrested After Foot Pursuit

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE FROM SPOKANE VALLEY POLICE: On Tuesday, July 24, 2012, at 6:30 p.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies responded to the area of 12900 E. Olive Avenue on a wanted subject call. 

Dispatch advised Deputy D. Powers that a witness called to report 21-year-old Colton Kilgallen was in a back yard at the Olive Avenue address. Deputy Powers confirmed Kilgallen had an active Department of Corrections warrant for his arrest prior to his arrival.
 
Deputy Powers had several prior contacts with Kilgallen and knew he had a history of running from the police. Therefore, Deputy Powers requested assistance and four additional Spokane Valley Deputies and two Liberty Lake Officers responded to the scene to assist in apprehending Kilgallen.
 
The witness, who was the homeowner, told Deputy Powers Kilgallen was sitting on his back porch with his girlfriend. The homeowner gave Deputy Powers permission to enter his yard and as he walked around to the backyard, Deputy Powers immediately recognized Kilgallen sitting on the back porch.
 
Deputy Powers told Kilgallen he was under arrest and Kilgallen immediately leaped from his chair and ran into the house. Deputy Powers ran around the house and heard other deputies say Kilgallen was running west on Olive Avenue. Kilgallen was later caught by Deputy Wells and two Liberty Lake Officers in a backyard on Olive Avenue.
 
After further investigation, Deputy Powers determined Kilgallen had ran through six separate yards, jumping fences during his attempted escape. Kilgallen also ran through a garage during his short escape attempt.  When Deputy Powers spoke with Kilgallen he said he was sorry, that he should not have run and that he was "just being stupid".

Kilgallen was booked into the Spokane County Jail on six counts of 2nd Degree Criminal Trespass, one count of 1st Degree Criminal Trespass, Resisting Arrest and the Department of Corrections Warrant.
