Boise Suspect Jumps from Moving Car, Flees to Avoid Officers
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Authorities say they have arrested a Boise man who jumped out of a moving vehicle and ran across Interstate 84 while trying to evade police.
The Idaho Statesman reports that 35-year-old Gary Zosel remained in the Ada County Jail Monday. He is being held on suspicion of drug possession, eluding police and violating parole in connection to the Saturday incident. A deputy had tried to pull Zosel over after noticing expired plates on his Nissan sedan.
The sheriff's office reported that Zosel sped off, jumped out of his car and ran across several lanes of traffic on the highway. The Nissan had crashed into a fence. Deputies later located the suspect near a pond and arrested him without further incident.
