K9 Chased Down Wig-wearing Man After Stolen Car Pursuit

Washington Co. Sheriff's Office - 06/01/18 

June 1, 2018 – Deputies arrested a man and woman after a pursuit with a stolen car.  The man driving was wearing a wig in a failed attempt to disguise himself and tried to flee on foot before a K9 chased him down and deputies tased him.  Deputies arrested the woman in the car as well.
On Friday, June 1, 2018, at 12:48 a.m., Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies saw a man driving a stolen 2016 Honda Civic near Baseline Rd. and SW 185th Avenue in the community of Aloha.  When deputies tried to stop the car, the driver took off reaching speeds of 90 miles per hour.  Deputies, including two K9 units, pursued the car for 11 miles and were successfully able to use spike strips but the driver continued.  Deputies attempted to use a controlled PIT (pursuit intervention technique) maneuver to stop the car.  The driver rammed a police car and eventually ended up partially off the road near the 19600 block of SW Tile Flat Rd.
As the car rolled to a stop, a man wearing a wig for disguise jumped out and ran.  Despite the wig, deputies immediately recognized him as 41-year-old Kimo Utuutuvanu of Aloha.  K9 Stark chased down Mr. Utuutuvanu who tried to kick and punch the dog.  K9 Stark bit Mr. Utuutuvanu who was also tased by deputies and then arrested. 
After receiving medical care, deputies took Mr. Utuutuvanu to jail for the following charges: unlawful use of a motor vehicle, felony attempt to elude, misdemeanor attempt to elude, reckless driving, recklessly endangering another person, misdemeanor driving while suspended, resisting arrest, attempted assault on a law enforcement animal, possession of heroin, and forgery.  The Beaverton Police Department also charged Mr. Utuutuvanu with felony attempt to elude for a separate pursuit in May 2018.  Mr. Utuutuvanu also had a felony warrant from a second prior pursuit and a felony warrant for a state parole violation.  The attached booking photo is from a May 2018 arrest.
29-year-old Kaylee Hathaway of Forest Grove was the only passenger in the car.  Deputies arrested Ms. Hathaway for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.  She also had three warrants: two for failure to appear on theft in the second degree and one for a probation violation.
