Man arrested with money, meth after hitting patrol car

EVERETT -- A gang member with an extensive criminal history was arrested Saturday in south Everett reportedly holding $601 and nearly an ounce of methamphetamine.
The man, 21, was taken into custody after allegedly driving into three cars, including a police car, while trying to get away from the cops.
Everett police had been watching the man's home along W. Casino Road early Saturday morning, according to a probable cause affidavit. The man had five active warrants. He also has been convicted of driving without a license at least 11 times, in addition to having three felony convictions as a juvenile.
The man is known for skipping court dates and making himself scarce from law enforcement, according to court papers.
About 4:30 a.m. Saturday, the man reportedly got into the driver's seat of a green Mercury Marquis and began to leave the apartment complex, court papers show. When police on scene tried to pull him over, the car stopped and began reversing. It then drove in reverse around the complex parking lot, striking two empty parked cars before hitting the patrol car.
The officer in the car wasn't injured, department spokesman officer Aaron Snell said Monday.
After the patrol car was hit, the man jumped out of the car and tried to run away. Officers took him into custody.
A police search found $601 in the man's right jacket pocket and "a very large chunk" of meth in his left jacket pocket.
The man was taken to a local hospital before being booked into Snohomish County Jail about 8:30 a.m. for investigation of hit-and-run, possessing drugs and driving without a license, in addition to his warrants.
