KENT, Washington — A 26-year-old man was arrested after leading police on a wild chase across several highways in South King County Wednesday night.
Police said it all started around 9:30 p.m. on Kent’s West Hill when an officer tried to pull the driver over for having only one working headlight.
The driver sped off and led officers onto Interstate 5, then Interstate 405 in Southcenter and onto southbound State Route 167 in Renton.
At one-point police stopped all traffic on southbound SR 167 between S. 180th St. and S. 212th S., but the man drove onto the shoulder around the traffic and kept going.
Police finally caught up with the driver when he exited SR 167 at 84th Ave. S. in Kent.
Officers boxed in the vehicle as he tried to enter the onramp to get back on to 167, and then took the driver into custody.
They said the driver showed no signs of impairment.
No one else was in the vehicle and no one was hurt during the chase.
