Man arrested after foot pursuit ends in creek

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane Police Deaprtment arrested Paul Reinhardt, 40, after a short chase Monday morning. The Spokane Valley Police Department responded to 15000 block of E Wellesley earlier this morning and developed probable cause to arrest Reinhard for Second Degeree Assault Domestic Violence and Felony violation of a Domestic Violence Restraining Order.  

Spokane Police Department officers located Reinhard near 20th and Inland Empire Way driving a white Subaru at 9:25 a.m.  Officers attempted to stop Reinhard, who fled in that vehicle.  Officers halted their pursuit when he started driving recklessly. The vehicle was later located near Oak and 29th Avenue and officers began searching the area on foot.  

At that time, a crew from the Burlington Northern Railroad was working on the rail road and saw the incident unfold. Crew members alerted officers that Reinhardt had crossed Latah Creek and was atempting to hide on the river bank.  Officers crossed the creek and took Reinhart into custody at 9:45 a.m.  Reinhardt apparently had a medical issue that did not allow him to walk out of the location.  Due to the isolated area, Spokane City Fire Department was called in to hoist him up off of the river bank.  He was eventually removed from the river bank at noon.

Aside from the Domestic Violence charges, Reinhart is facing Attempt to Elude and obstructing charges.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - It's been nearly one week since Washington voters passed Initiative 1639, a sweeping package of stricter gun regulations - particularly for semiautomatic rifles.
