Shelton, Mason County - A man and woman who tried to flee from a traffic stop were arrested and booked into the Mason County Jail, and troopers later served a search warrant on the vehicle resulting in several additional charges for the couple.
K9 Trooper Matt Wood stopped a 1992 Honda Accord, driven by 36 year-old transient Bryson E. Braget, on July 14 at approximately 2:30 pm after he observed the vehicle make a lane change and turn without signaling. Tonya L. League, a 20 year-old from Shelton was a passenger in the vehicle.
As Trooper Wood initiated a traffic stop, the vehicle turned onto Fairmount Avenue from Olympic Highway, and accelerated to a speed well in excess of the posted 25 MPH limit. As the vehicle passed Edgewood Street it swerved into the oncoming lane and came to a sliding stop off the roadway.
