Early morning chase damages deputy's patrol car; driver arrested

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. -

The Spokane County Sheriff's Office reports a deputy's patrol car was damaged after a car chase early Saturday morning.

The sheriff's office reports that around 5 a.m. deputies received a call of a stolen vehicle. While deputies were headed to the scene to take the report, they spotted the vehicle in question near the Wandermere and Hatch area. One deputy followed the truck while waiting for backup. When another deputy arrived, the deputies pulled the truck over.

The driver reversed, ramming one of the deputies' patrol cars, which caused heavy damage to the car, but the deputy in the car was not injured. The damage was so significant that airbags were deployed and the car was disabled.

The truck driver took off again and the second deputy followed. The truck driver pulled into a driveway near Crescent Road and bailed from the truck without putting it in park. The truck rolled into a ditch and struck a tree. The tree fell onto a power pole causing a power outage in the immediate area.

K-9 Units and Air-1 were called to try to locate the man, but were not successful at that time.

Deputies searched the truck for prints and anything else that would help find the man.

Just after 11 a.m.. deputies arrested 26-year-old Yuriy V. Siriy at the Quick Stop at Wild Rose and Highway 395 after receiving a call about a suspicious person from a County Roads Department employee. Siriy was booked into Spokane County Jail for theft of a motor vehicle, attempting to elude law enforcement, second degree assault and first degree malicious mischief.

    HELENA, Mont. - The mystery is over: Montana wildlife officials confirm that an unusual-looking animal shot in central Montana was actually a wolf.    Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials initially weren't certain what the creature was when a rancher shot it near Denton in May. They noted the legs, front claws and canine teeth were shorter and its ears bigger than normally seen on wolves.
