Domestic violence suspect flees after high speed chase

SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane County Sheriff's Deputies are looking for 33-year-old Sam Ingram after he fled law enforcement last night.

After an alleged domestic violence situation, a victim reported fearing that Ingram would kill her.

Deputy Ryan Truman located the car Ingram was believed to be driving and attempted to stop the vehicle, but Ingram accelerated, fleeing with one other adult male passenger in his vehicle.

A high speed pursuit ensued on North Newport Hwy towards Hwy. 2. Ingram drove recklessly, erratically braking and swerving in attempt to escape the Deputy.

Ingram's vehicle spun off the road and into the center median near Chattaroy Rd., where his passenger came out of the vehicle and surrendered to authorities.

Ingram managed to continue the car chase for a short time, eventually abandoning his vehicle and fleeing on foot.

Deputies, K9 units, and Air 1 searched for Ingram but were unsuccessful.

Ingram is facing two misdemeanor warrants in addition to charges of Attempting to Elude Law Enforcement, Driving While License Suspended, and a potential domestic violence charge in connection with this incident.
