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
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.
