***DUI AND FELONY ELUDING ARREST***
On 02-03-23 at approximately 1:00 AM a Grays Harbor Sheriff's Office Deputy attempted to stop a suspected DUI driver on Wishkah Road just north of Aberdeen. The vehicle failed to stop and attempted to elude the deputy. The deputy had reasonable suspicion to believe the the driver was under the influence. The on duty Sgt. authorized the deputy to pursue the suspect vehicle. Law enforcement may pursue vehicles for DUI and violent felonies only.

The pursuit went through the city of Aberdeen and then south on SR 105. Westport PD assisted the sheriff's office by setting up spike strips near the Westport Y. The Westport PD officer was able to deflate one of the front tires of the suspect's vehicle. The suspect continued on a flat tire south on SR105. A Shoalwater Bay Tribal Officer set up spike strips near the reservation boundary and was able to deflate the second front tire. The vehicle continued on it's rims until a deputy conducted a PIT maneuver on the suspect vehicle and deputies were able to block the vehicle from moving.

GHSO K9 Titus and his handler Deputy McKechnie were present when the vehicle was finally stopped. The suspect surrendered when he decided he did not want to meet K9 Titus personally. A peaceful surrender with no use of force is always the desired outcome. The mere presence of a K9 commonly has this effect.

There was evidence of illegal drug use. The driver was arrested and booked into the county jail for felony eluding, DUI, and DWLS 2nd degree.

Our Story

Grays Harbor Radio Group’s flagship station, KXRO, first went on the air May 28, 1928, during the Prohibition. Started by Seattle, Wash. police officer Roy Olmsted, who had a side business as a rum-runner, the station was used to signal runners when it was safe to transport their “product”. KXRO continues it’s community broadcasting over 80 years later with Grays Harbor’s only award winning radio News Department. Plus, KXRO is the only radio station in Grays Harbor to ever be nominated for Excellence In Community Broadcasting by the National Association Of Broadcasters…two years in a row! The next station in the group’s lineup was born in 1971 when Dale Gunderson started KDUX in Ocean Shores, Wash., with a “beautiful music” format. KDUX was moved to Aberdeen and became a rock station in the late 1970s. It continues it’s success as a the dominate Classic Rock format today as "The Rock of the Coast". In a world of bland satellite music formats, KDUX is the ONLY radio station on the coast to feature local air personalities 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The two stations were purchased by Pioneer Broadcasting, who operated KXRO as an adult contemporary station and KDUX as a rock station for several years until their purchase by Morris Communications in December 1998. KXRO now serves as the group’s news and talk station. Morris Communications added KIX 95.3 (KXXK), “The Harbor’s New Country station,” and KWOK, ESPN Sports Radio 1490 in April 2001, establishing Grays Harbor Radio Group as the entity it is today. KIX is the areas only local Country station providing the The Harbor’s New Country with Live and Local personalities. We live and work in Grays Harbor and Pacific County…and we love it!
