Renton man, Nicholas Ryan Sousa, was arrested and charged for his involvement in throwing debris at a vehicle traveling on the I-90 ramp near Rainier Avenue.
According to charging documents a witness saw 35-year-old Sousa make a throwing motion towards a Pepsi-Cola delivery truck and heard the sound of something hitting the truck.
Upon arriving at the scene, officers confirmed the man as matching the description other witnesses had given and detained Sousa.
Even after his detainment, Sousa would not identify himself to police. Sousa was admitted to Harborview Medical Center after he told police he had recently ingested fentanyl.
Sousa was eventually identified at HMC.
He has been charged with reckless endangerment, malicious mischief and criminal trespassing.
Sousa was arraigned on Friday, July 21 and pleaded not guilty. Prosecutors asked that Sousa be held in jail on bail. A judge agreed, and he’s still in King County Jail.
