A man who led police on a slow-speed chase around Oak Harbor parking lots April 3 is back in jail, according to court documents.
On April 29, deputies with the Island County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Rolling Hills neighborhood of North Whidbey after a man reported that Pual Moyers had damaged his car.
Moyers, 52, was also wanted on a $150,000 warrant after he didn’t appear for an arraignment hearing in Island County Superior Court for the police-chase case.
A driver reported to police that Moyers had blocked the road and was yelling. The man drove around Moyers, who struck the pickup with an object and damaged it, a deputy’s report states.
When deputies arrived, Moyers was holding a brass pipe and yelled at them to get off his property, ignoring commands.
A deputy shot him with a taser and Moyers fell to the ground, but continued to resist the deputies, the report states.
A deputy tasered Moyers again and he complied. A glass pipe was allegedly found in his hand as he was being handcuffed.
The next day, a judge in Island County Superior Court revoked Moyers’ bail.
The judge also found probable cause to believe Moyers committed the crimes of malicious mischief and disorderly conduct.
A deputy wrote that law enforcement officers had been dealing with Moyers on a weekly basis and he continues to commit crimes.
Moyers is also facing felony charges in two other cases.Moyers was accused of eluding police for leading a half dozen officers from three agencies on a slow-speed chase through Walmart and Safeway parking lots; officers spiked his tires on the highway to stop him, according to court documents.
In a separate case, he was accused of harassing people in his neighborhood and resisting arrest.
A judge twice ordered that a mental health professional evaluate Moyers for possible commitment to a mental health treatment facility.
