Short police chase ends in Renton

A short police chase that began in Skyway came to end in Renton Monday evening.

Sheriff's Office spokesman DB Gates said he did not know why the driver did not stop for police as the car was registered to him.

Two unoccupied cars and three police cars were damaged during the incident.

The suspect was booked for investigation of attempting to elude.
