Wanted Felon Can't Outrun Laslo

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE: On Wednesday morning, January 8th, 2014, at about 2:15 a.m., Spokane County Sheriff's Deputy Jeff Thurman and his K9 partner Laslo were patrolling the area of Laberry and Barker when Deputy Thurman observed a 2002 Nissan Altima fail to stop at the stop sign prior to turning southbound onto Barker.

Deputy Thurman attempted to stop the vehicle at Sprague and Tschirley as the vehicle continued westbound on Sprague. The driver of the vehicle, later identified as 27-year-old Bryan Bewick, failed to stop and accelerated, fishtailing back and forth on the compact snow roadway. Deputy Thurman told dispatch he was in pursuit of Bewick and traveled westbound to the area of Sprague and Adams.

It was near that intersection that Bewick slid sideways and struck a fence at a business located at 14820 E. Sprague. Bewick ran from the vehicle and Deputy Thurman and Laslo gave chase. Deputy Thurman yelled at Bewick and told him he was under arrest. He also told Bewick he was going to deploy Laslo if he did not stop running. Bewick chose not to listen to Deputy Thurman's commands and Laslo was deployed.

Laslo quickly detained Bewick prior to running into a residential area. Bewick told Deputy Thurman "I saw the lights and hit the gas" when he was asked why he ran. After checking Bewick's name through dispatch Deputy Thurman learned his driving status was suspended in the 2nd degree and that he had a felony warrant for vehicle theft for his arrest.

Bewick was booked into jail for Felony Eluding, Resisting Arrest, Obstructing, Driving While License Suspended 2nd Degree and Hit and Run.
