Man fights two Yakima detectives

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- A man fought with two Yakima detectives early this morning.

It happened across the street from Yakima Regional Medical Center between Ninth and Tenth Avenue on Walnut. The two detectives were investigating a stolen car chase when they got in a fight with the suspect. Both of the officers and the suspect were injured and taken to the hospital.

"Nobody has major injuries, but… Probably disabling injuries, at least for a time being... Probably broken bones, things like that," says Yakima Police Captain Jeff Schneider.

Schneider says the suspect refused to identify himself. Police also took two other people into custody, but both were quickly released. Schneider says in addition to the stolen car, they found drugs and other possible stolen items.
