Deputy Assaulted During Arrest

Posted: Updated:

Spokane County Sheriff's Department Press Release:

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - On Tuesday, November 6, 2012, at about 10:00 a.m., Sheriff's Dispatch put out a call of a male walking eastbound on the south shoulder of I-90 near Argonne Road. 

Deputy T. Jones responded to the scene and located the male, later identified as 28-year-old Kortny Duback, walking east on I-90 near Evergreen Road.  Deputy Jones saw that Duback was walking near the eastbound lanes of travel making it extremely dangerous for himself as well as the motoring public.

Deputy Jones contacted Duback who became confrontational immediately.  Duback refused to obey Deputy Jones orders to keep his hands out of the front of his pockets while waiting for additional deputies to arrive.  Due to Duback failing to obey Deputy Jones orders and his strange, possibly drug induced behavior, Deputy Jones ordered Duback to the ground.

When Deputy D. Schaum arrived on scene and attempted to place handcuffs on Duback, Duback spun sideways and struck Deputy Schaum on the side of the face.  A taser application was administered and deputies were able to take Duback into custody.

Duback was booked into the Spokane County Jail on one felony count of 3rd Degree Assault, one felony count of Possession of a  Controlled Substance (methamphetamine) and a misdemeanor charge of Obstructing.
