Police tase man armed with knives in northwest Spokane
SPOKANE, Wash. — Spokane Police tased a man they said was threatening drivers near N. Driscoll Blvd and W. Winston Dr. Tuesday afternoon.
Police were called to the area for reports of a domestic violence incident involving the man, Reishawn M. Baker, and his girlfriend’s father who made the call. Reishawn left the home, armed with large knives, and was locked out.
Reishawn then went to the intersection at Driscoll and Winston and started waiving his knives at cars passing by. A truck slowed down for him, and he scraped its hood with the knives.
