Cops: Man rams repo men w/ Jeep

A Jeep repossession led to a man's arrest on felony assault charges after he rammed a repossession officer's car Thursday in Spokane Valley, according to police.

Cullen Joe Gibson-Snodgrass, 30, was driving a 1999 Jeep Wrangler when two repossession officers with Phoenix Financial, Kelly J. Brown and Jason E. Lyons, spotted him near East Sprague Avenue and North Bowdish Road, according to court documents prepared by police

Brown and Lyons were looking to repossess the Jeep and followed Gibson-Snodgrass for several blocks until he stopped the Jeep in the road, put it in reverse and rammed into Brown's car, documents say. Brown cut his index finger in the crash.

Gibson-Snodgrass appeared in Spokane County Superior Court Friday on two counts of first-degree assault. He's already awaiting trial on unrelated charges of first-degree theft, first-degree trafficking in stolen property and residential burglary. Prosecutors appear to have reconsidered the charges - he's due back in court this afternoon on two counts of second-degree assault/
