The following is a release from the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office:

A 24 year-old Tacoma woman suspected of mail theft was taken into custody this morning following a pursuit and brief struggle in Bothell.

The incident began around 4:20 a.m. when a Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office deputy was contacting the woman in her vehicle at 9th Ave SE and Filbert Drive. They struggled and as the woman fled the scene in her car, the deputy was briefly dragged before falling to the ground.

The deputy returned to his vehicle and pursued the suspect to the Canyon Park QFC, where he used a PIT maneuver to attempt to end the pursuit. The woman rammed the deputy’s patrol car with her own vehicle and then continued to struggle with the deputy after being taken into custody. The deputy deployed his pepper spray and Taser to subdue her.

The deputy was not injured and the woman was taken to a nearby hospital to be treated and cleared for booking.
