Bail Set at $500k for Finley Man Accused of Ramming Patrol Cars

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, WA. A Benton County judge has set a half-million-dollar bail for a man sheriff's deputies say crashed his truck into two patrol cars.

Deputies arrested 33-year-old Shane DeWeber earlier this month.

Deputies say he threatened officers with a sword outside his estranged wife's home. Officers shot the man with a taser but say DeWeber managed to drive away.

Deputies say after he rammed into two parked patrol cars, officers tased him a second time and subdued him.

No officers were hurt.

Deputies say they believe DeWeber was under the influence of a controlled substance.

Prosecutor Andy Miller argued for the high bail, saying DeWeber should be considered a threat to the community.

DeWeber entered a not guilty plea to assault charges. Miller says additional charges could be filed later.
