What the big law-enforcement response at 16th/106th was about

Just in from WCN contributor Deanie Schwarz – More than 20 law-enforcement vehicles rushed to help a King County transit deputy after an attack attempt around 9:45 pm in White Center. A KC Sheriff’s Office supervisor told Deanie that the deputy tried to make a routine traffic stop, pulling over the vehicle in a business parking lot at 106th/16th. As the deputy approached the vehicle, the driver threw it into reverse, gunned it, and tried to run over the deputy, according to the KCSO supervisor. Deanie says the call for backup brought cars from Seattle, Burien, and Sound Transit as well as the Sheriff’s Office. The deputy wasn’t hurt; one arrest is reported, and three more people were detained for questioning.

  1. Why is a “transit” cop making routine traffic stops?
    His job is to work TRANSIT problems!

  2. “transit deputy”(s) are King County Sheriff’s Deputies who have the full authority of the KC Sheriff and, therefore, can make stops and arrests as needed even under sunny White Center skies.
