Police stop driver fleeing in stolen vehicle who rammed two patrol cars

A stolen Chevy Blazer is blocked by Bremerton police vehicles on Wednesday after the driver was involved in a pursuit.

A 31-year-old man accused of being on meth and leading a chase after intentionally ramming multiple Bremerton police patrol cars while driving a stolen car was arrested on Wednesday afternoon after officers were able to block his vehicle in place and stop him on Kitsap Way, according to the Bremerton Police Department.

In a press release, Bremerton police said officers located a stolen Chevy Blazer driven by the male suspect just after 4 p.m. The suspect “intentionally rammed” a Bremerton police patrol car at S. National Avenue and Charleston Beach Road, according to police, and a pursuit ensued, with the driver hitting another Bremerton police patrol car along the way. 

When the vehicle was traveling on Kitsap Way between Oyster Bay and National Avenue, a Bremerton officer used his patrol vehicle in a “pursuit intervention technique” to “spin the suspect vehicle when an opportunity presented itself.”
