A Washington State Patrol trooper got more than he bargained for when he tried to pull over a woman from Olympia for expired tabs.
The trooper spotted a white hatchback Toyota Prius southbound on I-5 through Marysville Wednesday evening. But when the trooper turned on his emergency lights, the driver “made no reasonable attempt to pull over,” according to the arrest report. She drove about a mile before leaving I-5 and stopping at an intersection.
The trooper then told her over the loudspeaker to get off the road.
She stayed put.
The trooper then approached the driver’s side window and told her again to move off the road. She allegedly said she would not stop until she reached the Bank of America parking lot.
The trooper told the driver to pull over a third time.
“I will not,” she reportedly said. “I drive a Prius. I am not pulling over there.”
The driver was unhappy.
“I will own your bank account. I will own your house,” she reportedly said.
The trooper asked her name.
“None of your business,” she allegedly said.
