*The SUV wrecks at ~2:43
On June 7, 2018 Armon L. Irons was arrested by officers of the Seattle Police Department and King County Sheriff’s Office following a county-wide search and eventual vehicle pursuit, which ended in Irons barricading himself inside his Volkswagen SUV as SPD SWAT was called to respond. (Irons was taken into custody just before SWAT pulled up on scene.)
For background, the following is an officer narrative from the case file:
“Shoreline had a DV shooting at approx. 0600 hours. Dispatch stated the suspect, Armon Irons, fled in a grey VW Atlas SUV.
King County detectives informed SPD that Irons’ cell was pinging in the area around ML King / Henderson at approx. 0730 hours.
Officer Ducre found the vehicle at ML King / Boeing Access Road, and a pursuit ensued. Irons was northbound in the southbound lanes in the 9000 block of East Marginal Way South, and blew out the SUV’s left front tire. The pursuit continued northbound until the 7900 block of East Marginal Way South, where Irons lost control of the VW, drove onto a dirt / gravel road, and crashed into the railroad tracks on the west side. Irons and an unknown passenger were taken into custody shortly thereafter.
I noted the following damage to the VW Atlas: the left front tire had blown out and the rim ground down by contact with pavement. The remaining three rims had large gouges.
King County took custody of Irons. SPD requested the charge for investigation of felony eluding be filed.”
