GRANT COUNTY, WA- A man from Moses Lake is behind bars, facing attempted murder charges after he allegedly tried to kill two Grant County Sheriff's deputies.

The sheriff's office says around 3 a.m. Wednesday the deputies spotted a suspicious car at an apartment complex. As they got closer, the passenger took off on foot.

Deputies questioned the driver, 27-year-old Nicholas Romero Rivera and found he had several outstanding warrants. Rivera allegedly fought with them during the arrest, the deputies tased him twice but did not have much effect.
