Standoff ends peacefully

Posted: Updated:
Spokane Police arrested a seven-time felon following a brief standoff at a home in south Spokane Saturday afternoon, according to a news release.

Police later identified that driver as 27-year-old Jody L. Wallette. They tracked him to a home further down 36th avenue. Because of his history of violence, SWAT teams responded to the home. After brief negotiations, Wallette walked out of the home and police arrested him.


Wallette faces charges of Attempt to Elude a Police Vehicle, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm and Possession of a Controlled Substance (meth).
