TOPPENISH, Wash-- A Wapato man leads police on a high-speed chase.

It happened just after 6:30 P.M., Saturday night.

Police tried to pull him over multiple times, but Ramos refused to stop.

Ramos crashed head on into the vehicle of Yakama Tribal Police.

He tried to escape on foot, but was arrested within five feet of his car.

Ramos is a tribal member, so tribal police are handling the investigation.

Police say he's being charged with six counts of assault with a deadly weapon, reckless driving, driving with a suspended license, obstruction of justice, three counts of marijuana possession, illegal gun carry, and injury to public property.
