The latest: High-speed chase rips through I-90

11:00 pm

Right now one man is in jail and a Spokane County Sheriff's Deputy is recovering from a terrifying moment where he narrowly avoided death.

A man was leading deputies on a high-speed chase through Spokane Valley. As the deputy was putting out spike strips, the driver swerved and nearly hit him, forcing the Deputy to jump into his own trunk to avoid the driver.

"It was just pure reaction. Obviously saw the main grill of the truck coming at me. So, ended up making sure the spike strips continued to stay set and saw him change direction. The only place I really had to jump into was my trunk so there it was."

In the video, you can see just how dangerous this high-speed chase was and amazingly no one was injured.

It started earlier this evening in Spokane Valley when police tried to stop a white Ford Explorer near Sprague and Argonne. The driver who was under investigation and wanted on firearms violations took off leading police on a high-speed chase that lasted 20 minutes, winding through Spokane Valley, and reaching speeds of 90 mph.

Officers were finally able to stop the pickup truck just across the border in Idaho near Stateline using a pit maneuver, spinning it out in an empty lot. The driver then ran back toward the Spokane River before being caught with help from Sheriff K-9 Gunner.

The driver has now been identified as 30-year-old Jorel Fultz who was accused last year of attacking former Deadliest Catch star Jake Harris. Although police had planned to arrest Fultz for the attack on Harris, Snohomish County Prosecutors did not file charges against him in time to keep him behind bars. Last week, Spokane County Sheriff's deputies say Fultz allegedly crashed a friend's car into a tree and then ran off.

Tonight, Fultz is in the Spokane County Jail facing multiple charges.
