Update: Seattle Police say they weren’t able to locate the warrant suspect who fled after a short chase yesterday afternoon. SPD says the warrant was issued because he failed to show up for a court date for possession of narcotics.
The RV was towed and is now in police custody.
Original: A man was being chased on foot Ballard after fleeing from his vehicle on Sunday afternoon around 3pm.
According to several witness reports in the My Ballard Group, an RV was being chased in Sunset Hill, eventually stopping near NW 77th and 23rd Ave NW. The man ran from his RV and police followed in pursuit, with a K-9 unit called in to search the area.
My Ballard Group member Bret says a policeman on the scene informed him that the man had been pulled over in a routine traffic stop, but then ran because of an outstanding warrant.
