Crime Tracker: Felon Arrests Prompts Warning To Comply With Officer Commands

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Police arrested convicted felon 28-year-old Maceo Williams following a foot chase that started with a report of shots fired in Northeast Spokane.  Police say Williams ditched three loaded guns during the foot chase.  They say the situation ended much better than it could have, as Williams ignored commands to stop and put his hands up.

SPD says officers are trained from day one to watch a suspect's hands at all times.  SPD says officers must assess situations on the fly and that they are often tense, uncertain and rapidly evolving.  The department says the officer chasing Williams was able to make a peaceful arrest without any shots fired. 

Meantime, law enforcement reminds citizens to always comply with instruction from officers or deputies.  Deputy Craig Chamberlain says even if you're innocent of any wrong doing, it is essential you listen to instruction and don't make any move that would threaten a law enforcement officer's safety.
