Spokane Police Department Press Release:

Spokane Police PACT members arrested 19-year-old Nash Teal for 1st Degree Assault and Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle.

The incident happened just before noon on 010513.  PACT members spotted Teal getting into a stolen 1998 Nissan truck. 

The truck was stolen earlier that morning when the victim was warming it up on the north side of town.  Several Officers surrounded him in their vehicles in an attempt to block Teal from fleeing in the car and engaging in a pursuit. 

Teal purposely rammed an unmarked police car and a patrol car while trying to escape. 

Officers were able to pin the vehicle in so Teal ran a short distance on foot before being taken into custody.  One officer was injured during the arrest in neighboring yard and was treated at a local hospital.  

Any situation where a suspect is able to get mobile in a vehicle substantially increases the risk to the public. 

Officers put themselves in harms way to prevent that from happening and successfully made an arrest in this case.  Nash Teal was booked into jail for 1st degree assault with the vehicle and possession of a stolen motor vehicle.
