Assault Victim Arrested

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. - On Tuesday, April 2, 2013, at 1:00 p.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies responded to a fight call at the intersection of 4th and Pines.  Deputies received information that one of the male combatants, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, had pulled a handgun on another male after he was punched in the face.  The other male in the altercation was not located.
 
Deputy C. Hilton arrived on scene and saw the armed male walking north on Pines.  Deputy Hilton contacted the male, later identified as 33-year-old Kevin Chastain, at Sprague and Pines.  Deputy Hilton ordered Chastain to the ground since he was reported to be armed.  Chastain refused to cooperate and ran northwest across Sprague Avenue. 
 
Deputy Hilton advised he was in foot pursuit of Chastain and saw he dropped a backpack he was carrying.  Deputy Hilton chased Chastain across Sprague to the northwest corner of Sprague and Pines.  Chastain ran behind a truck and threw a handgun onto the ground and continued running.  The gun was retrieved by a detective and later determined it had been stolen.
 
Deputy Hilton continued chasing Chastain and saw him throw a plastic baggie on the ground.  Deputy Hilton later collected the baggie that contained a white substance that tested presumptive positive for methamphetamine.
 
Once Deputy Hilton caught up to Chastain he deployed his taser one time and took Chastain into custody.  Chastain admitted that the methamphetamine belonged to him and that he had a drug problem. 
 
Chastain has nine prior felony convictions that include Possession of a Stolen Vehicle, Possession of Stolen Property 1st Degree, Trafficking in Stolen Property, Taking a Motor Vehicle Without Permission, Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle, Residential Burglary and Forgery.
 
  • Chastain was booked into the Spokane County Jail for the charges of Possession of a Stolen Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Firearm, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Obstructing and Possessing Burglary Tools.
