Police: Edmonds Man Steals Parents' Car, Waves at Officers During Pursuit

A 28-year-old man was taken into custody Saturday after driving erratically in downtown Edmonds and leading police on a short chase.

A 28-year-old Edmonds man was arrested Saturday afternoon after police say he stole his parents' car and led officers on a short pursuit.

The incident began at around 2:45 p.m. when police received reports of an erratic driver along the waterfront near downtown Edmonds who was also getting out of the vehicle and "acting strangely," according to a department news release.

When police spotted the vehicle and attempted to stop the driver, he allegedly led officers on a short pursuit through the downtown area--repeatedly waving at his pursuers as he drove. Police eventually were able to block in the suspect's vehicle and take him into custody.

Police say the man continued to act erratically as he was being arrested and kicked out the window of an Edmonds Police cruiser. He was transported to Snohomish County Jail and booked on related charges.
