Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Deputy Mike Osgood loads a 34-year-old man from the Copalis Beach area into a Sheriff’s cruiser for transport to the Grays Harbor County Jail. The man was apprehended after attempting to flee on foot when Osgood attempted to arrest him on charges stemming from a domestic violence assault earlier this morning into Copalis Beach. Resisting arrest has been added to the charges.
A domestic violence situation in Copalis Beach earlier this morning ended with a foot pursuit across State Street from the Heron Street AM/PM in Aberdeen. The suspect, a 34-year-old man from the Copalis Beach area, was arrested at about 9:45 a.m.
He has been booked in the Grays Harbor County Jail on charges of domestic violence assault and resisting arrest.
Deputy Mike Osgood of the Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office observed the suspect’s vehicle stopped at the AM/PM parking lot in Aberdeen after hearing about the domestic violence incident. When Osgood attempted to apprehend the suspect, there was a physical confrontation and the suspect fled on foot, according to Chief Criminal Deputy Dave Pimentel of the Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office.
Police units from Aberdeen, Hoquiam and the State Patrol also assisted the Sheriff’s Office in the chase. The suspect climbed over a fence into a secured compound where he was apprehended, Pimentel said.
There were no injuries.
