Spokane police arrested a wanted 18-year-old man Monday evening after he reportedly fled from the East Central Fred Meyer parking lot driving the wrong way on a one-way and crashed into a tree.

Officers first responded to the parking lot on Thor Street just before 6:30 p.m. for a report of a wanted subject, identified as Anthony Kain, according to a news release.

When police tried to make a traffic stop on the Dodge Ram truck Kain was reported to be driving, the vehicle sped off through the parking lot, nearly striking pedestrians, according to a news release. Kain was wanted on a felony warrant for dangerous drugs and a misdemeanor theft warrant.

Officers did not pursue the vehicle when it left the parking lot heading the wrong direction on 3rd Avenue, which is an eastbound one-way road.

Within a block of the parking lot, the truck crashed into a tree and Kain ran from the vehicle, the release said.

Officers then arrested Kain without incident, and no one was injured.

Kain was booked into Spokane County Jail just before 7:30 p.m. on charges of attempting to elude police, driving under the influence and driving without a license, according to court records.

Kain’s bail on his misdemeanor theft charge was set at $250.
