The suspect immediately took off on foot. Officers established a perimeter in the area, and a K9 from a neighboring agency responded to assist officers with tracking the suspect.

The suspect was located in the backyard of a residence on Military Rd South, where he was taken into custody.

He was found with a firearm at the time of his arrest.

The suspect was booked into King County Jail on charges of eluding, unlawful possession of a firearm, DUI, and hit & run.
