Hitchhiker gets his wish

A Spokane Valley police officer granted the wish of a hitchhiker at Sprague and Vista late Wednesday who wanted a ride downtown after learning the man was considered an armed career criminal and had a baggie of methamphetamine in his backpack. David C. Cooke, 51, denied ownership of the baggie of drugs, but the officer still gave him a ride downtown - to the Spokane County Jail. Reporter Meghann Cuniff has more details here.
