Kennewick woman arrested after slashing patrol car tires and running from police

KENNEWICK, WA- A woman arrested after slashing police car tires and threatening police officers at a home on W. 4th Avenue Monday morning. Kennewick Police said 28 year old Andrea Spreadbury was seen with scissors and throwing rocks from her home. When police arrived to the scene she came out of her home with dishes throwing them at officers. Officers tried to de-escalate the situation and calm her down. Spreadbury then went back into the home to get a kitchen knife and then threatened police, ran and slashed nine tires on patrol cars. Spreadbury then ran on foot away from police with the knife. KPD said the response was limited due to the new HB 1054 measure in effect today from the Washington State Legislature that would not allow certain equipment to help deescalate the situation faster. Police then put several businesses and schools on lockdown as they attempted to subdue her. Pasco Police were called to the scene with a pepperball gun- which police say is a non-lethal tactic and then used a taser to release the knife from her hands. She was arrested without injury. All businesses and schools have reopened.

Kennewick Police Need to ID 2 Thieves Stealing Expensive Items

Take a close look. Shouldn't be too hard to identify these two. Surely, someone knows who they are. According to the Kennewick Police Department Facebook page, the two suspects took a Wireless Bose Speaker System. This is not a cheap item. I kid you not. I work many hours just to attain any item of the Bose quality. So, this is especially irritating to me. To think that someone may get away with just taking it? Not cool, at all, in my book.

When You Burn Tires in Front of Kennewick Police…

It's the middle of the night and you're cruising the beautiful metropolis of Kennewick, Washington. The urge hits to do a little burnout, after all, you just watched the new Fast and Furious movie. But then oops! You didn't notice the cop sitting there and you did your burn out right in front of him. What's the big deal? Not much. The driver got a ticket for reckless driving and operating a motor vehicle without proof of insurance and a few other infractions, according to the Kennewick Police Facebook post below. I'm kind of surprised that they let him drive away without proof of insurance, but then again they don't make the laws they only enforce them. And I'm sure the driver was not impaired or his night would have been much worse. But the comments below vary from anger to laughing about the whole situation. Back when I was cruising the drag in my 1970 Firebird, I never got caught burning the tires, because I couldn't afford tires that often! But my friends and I did get pulled over a few times and nobody went to jail. In fact, growing up in Butte, Montana, a speeding ticket would cost you a $5 bill. And yes, you paid the cop on the spot (true). Those were the good old days!
