Posted: Monday, December 27, 2010

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Police have arrested a man wanted on felony warrants following a foot chase in Kennewick.

Officer Isaac Merkl of the Kennewick police says Brian Davis was walking along a street Saturday morning and began running when spotted by Benton County deputies.

He managed to evade the deputies but Merkl says he went to the scene and saw Davis and another chase began.

Merkl tells the Tri-City Herald that deputies and police officers surrounded an area where Davis was hiding and sent in an officer with a dog.

He says that Davis surrendered because he was apparently afraid of being bitten by the animal.

Davis was wanted on charges ranging from assault to forgery and faces a new charge of resisting arrest.
