St. Maries Man Arrested For Assaulting Officers In Pend Oreille County

PEND OREILLE COUNTY, Wash. - A man armed with a knife was arrested in Pend Oreille County after leading officers on a chase Monday afternoon. 

A press release issued by the Pend Oreille County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday said that a deputy responded to Metaline Falls on Monday afternoon to look into a Domestic Violence, No Contact Order violation. Dispatch notified the deputy that the suspect, identified as 26-year-old Paul D. Brantner of St. Maries, was in front of the victim's apartment wearing a hoodie and carrying a large knife. 

The deputy requested assistance from the U.S. Border Patrol station in Metaline. Once two Border Patrol agents arrived, the three officers located Brantner near the apartment building and ordered him to show his hands. Officers say Brantner ignored their commands, got into a car and took off. 

After a short pursuit, Brantner tried to turn his vehicle around but was blocked in by the pursuing officers. While still in his car, deputies say Brantner again refused commands from the officers and armed himself with a knife. A Border Patrol agent was able to knock the knife from Brantner's hand, while Deputy Bowman from Pend Oreille County pulled him out of the car. Brantner was then tased by a Border Patrol agent and put into handcuffs. 

Brantner was booked into jail on charges of Violation of a Protection Order, Assault 3rd Degree, Resisting Arrest and Felony Eluding.
