A sheriff’s helicopter used infrared radar to locate an Airway Heights driver whose speed topped 100 mph early Saturday.
Jared H. Horton, 22, was arrested after abandoning his still-running 1998 Chevy Malibu in a driveway along Lewis Road and running from a home into a marsh, according to the Spokane County Sheriff's Office.
The arrest came after Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputy Chuck Sciortino tried to pull him over on Sunset Highway near Lewis Road about 1:30 a.m. Saturday.
The sheriff’s Air One helicopter located Horton using its “forward-looking radar."
Horton was arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated, obstructing a police officer and reckless driving.
