MARYSVILLE – A driver trying to resist arrest is in custody this morning after dragging a Marysville police while backing out of a driveway, then striking two parked vehicles on the street, including a patrol car.

The arresting officer, 30 and transient suspect, 36, were taken to Providence Hospital Medical Center in Everett. The officer was treated for a broken finger and bruised hip, then released, Police Sgt. Pete Shove said.

The incident occurred at 4:22 a.m. when the officer approached the man outside a home in the 1000 block of Alder Avenue.

During the contact, the officer spotted drug paraphernalia in the man’s car and tried to arrest him. The suspect resisted, then got back into his vehicle while fighting with the officer, Shove said.

The suspect put his car in reverse, then backed quickly into the roadway, dragging the officer and striking the patrol vehicle of a second officer who had arrived to help, Shove said.

The suspect then hit a second unoccupied vehicle. He was taken into custody shortly afterward.

After medical treatment, the suspect was taken to the Marysville Police Department and is expected to be booked at the Snohomish County Jail for multiple charges pending an investigation, Shove said.
