SPOKANE, Wash. -- Police arrested a 50-year-old man Sunday morning after they said he drove his own car into the Spokane River.
Around 6 am, Police responded to a report of a carjacking in the 500 block of E. Spokane Falls Blvd. The suspect originally told officers that someone had stolen his car and drove it into the river.
Officers were able to determine that the suspect, Rex Pollock, 50, and a female victim had been arguing in his car. They said Pollock started driving recklessly during the argument and left the road where Cincinnati comes to a dead end just south of the Trent Bridge.
Police said the car looked to be going at a high rate of speed when it crashed into the river. The car stopped in about five feet of water, about 25 feet from the shore.
The woman was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Pollock was booked into jail for Reckless Endangerment Domestic Violence and Providing False Information to Officers.
