SPOKANE, Wash. -- Washington State Patrol troopers were involved in a pursuit that ended at the suspect’s home in Airway Heights just after midnight Saturday.   After a standoff involving the Spokane County Sheriff's Office SWAT Team, the suspect surrendered.
 
Just after midnight Saturday, an Airway Heights man, Brandon G. Hagreen, was observed committing multiple traffic violations.  A WSP Trooper attempted to stop Hagreen on westbound I-90, near Altamont. 
 
A pursuit ensued, ending at Hagreen's residence in the Airway Heights area.  Airway Heights Police Department, Spokane International Airport Police and the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office assisted the WSP.  Hagreen’s family, who were in the residence at the time, came outside and cooperated with law enforcement's attempts to coax Hagreen from the home.  
 
The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team was activated and a search warrant was obtained to enter the residence and arrest Hagreen.  During SWAT operations, Hagreen exited the house and was arrested without incident.

Hagreen, who had an outstanding warrant for DUI, is being charged with Attempting to Elude a Police Officer, Reckless Driving, Driving Under the Influence and Driving on a Revoked Driver’s License. 

Hagreen was booked into the Spokane County Jail.
