A man and woman were arrested early Friday morning following a pursuit and foot chase through Washington County.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office said deputies tried to stop a man driving a stolen 2016 Honda Civic near Baseline Road and Southwest 185th Avenue at 12:48 a.m., but the driver took off.

Deputies pursued the vehicle, which reached speeds of 90 miles per hour, for 11-miles and successfully used spike strips, however, the driver continued.

The sheriff's office said deputies attempted a controlled PIT maneuver, but the driver rammed a patrol car and ended up partially off the road near the 19600 block of Southwest Tile Flat Road.

The man, who was wearing a wig as a disguise, jumped out of the vehicle and fled on foot.

K-9 Stark chased down the man who then tried to kick and punch the dog. The suspect, identified as 41-year-old Kimo Utuutuvanu, was bitten by K-9 Stark and was also tased by deputies before being arrested.
